Women's Health

We have considerable experience and expertise in women’s health research, led by Professors Shakila Thangaratinam and Khalid Khan, including high-risk obstetrics, gestational diabetes and gynaecological conditions, and have successfully delivered national and internationally collaborative NIHR and Barts Charity funded projects. We are involved in a number of women’s health trials and Individual Patient Data (IPD) meta-analysis projects.

Studies include two large scale RCTs on intra-operative cell salvage during caesarean section in women at risk of haemorrhage (SALVO) and the effect of simple, targeted diet in pregnant women with metabolic risk factors on pregnancy outcomes (ESTEEM).
