New research has led to NHS offering pregnant women a new blood test to check severe risk of pre-eclampsia.
Our researchers want to know if we can test vaginal fluid early in pregnancy to find out which women have vaginal infections that are likely to cause their baby to come too soon.
We are currently investigating changes to the sperm in men with liver disease, and how this also impacts the lifelong health of their children.
Scientists are investigating whether certain chemicals in urine can be used to identify women who are at risk of developing ICP later on in pregnancy.
Tommy’s researchers are finding out if total plasma exchange (TPE) is beneficial for women with severe liver disease.
Tommy’s researchers want to find out what the risks are in intrahepatic cholestasis pregnancies with lower levels of bile acids.
Our researchers have lowered the threshold at which women are diagnosed with gestational diabetes. We want to see how this affects pregnancy outcomes.
Researchers are looking at whether a simple test early on in pregnancy can identify women at risk of diabetes.
We want to identify which women and babies are at risk of complications associated with hypertension. To do this, we are using MRI scans to detect abnormalities.
Our four research centres have collaborated to create a single biobank to inform more life-saving research and studies
