Research Focus

My research focuses on the areas of prenatal diagnosis and fetal medicine and therapy. I have undertaken work in the areas of prenatal screening, pregnancy complications (including preterm labour) and prenatal diagnosis. I also have an interest in fetal therapy and have introduced aspects of fetal therapy and surgery to the MUHC. Through multidisciplinary collaborations our intention is not only to expand the role of established techniques but also to participate in the development and evaluation of innovative techniques.
