Maternal and Fetal Medicine

The Maternal and Fetal Medicine Research Group has been recognized by AGAUR as a consolidated research group. It is a multidisciplinary team which integrates different knowledge areas in basic and clinical research. Basic research aims to identify new diagnostic and therapeutic tools in maternal and fetal pathologies, while clinical research intends to apply these tools in clinical practice.

The group coordinator is Dr. Elena Carreras, awarded with the professional excellence award by the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Barcelona in 2018.

The group has different investigation areas:

  • Preterm delivery and vaginal microbiota
  • Placental insufficiency    
  • Fetal spina bifida prenatal surgical treatment 
  • Obstetric ultrasound, fetal medicine and fetal therapy
  • Maternal and obstetric pathology and infections during gestation
