Women's Health and Perinatology Research Group

Our research group focuses on a combination of basic science (translational) and clinical research in the area of women’s health and perinatology. Current research focuses are fetalmaternal physiology and genetics, placenta, reproductive biology and immunology, evidence based pregnancy care and epidemiology, urogynecology and cronic pelvic pain. 

Main research areas are:

  • Maternal and fetal cardiovascular physiology
  • Biology of normal and pathological placenta
  • Experimental feto-maternal medicine using animal models
  • Genetics of feto-maternal diseases
  • Epidemiologial studies related to obstetrics & gynecology and register-based studies
  • Preeclampsia, its pathophysiology and long-term consequences
  • Fetal-neonatal alloimmune thrombocytopenia
  • Epidemiology-based studies on chronic pelic pain using data from Fit Futures and Tromsøstudien
  • Female urinary incontinence
  • Development and refinement of embryo culture media, pre-implantation biology, and clinical assisted reproduction
  • Oral health in pregnancy
