UNIT LEAD: Stamatina Iliodromiti

The unit undertakes multidisciplinary research to understand why a woman and her unborn child can become ill and how they can stay healthy. We conduct epidemiological and big data research, clinical trials and evidence synthesis collaboratively with patient and public involvement. We host “Katie’s Team”, a diverse, user-led patient and public advisory group for women’s health research. We also host the Antenatal Screening Service, which conducts around 80,000 tests per year.  Our unit involves a range of disciplines such as clinical epidemiology, biostatistics and health technology assessment which are the cornerstones of research to improve policy and practice, embedded within communities and health systems locally, nationally and globally.

  • Utilising routine datasets to develop learning healthcare systems in maternity.
