About

My research is involved in trying to understand the mechanisms and consequences of the link between altered fetal growth and the future development of diseases such as gestational and type 2 diabetes, gestational hypertension, the metabolic syndrome and precocious pubarche. The strategy that I have used involves the phenotypic analysis of in vivo models and in vitro genetic association studies relating common polymorphic variation in DNA with markers of disease. I am currently leading a programme of work assessing the role of fetal imprinted genes on maternal metabolism and physiology in pregnancy. We have found a range of fetal genetic variants that are associated with either gestational diabetes or gestational hypertension.
