Making pregnancy safer for mother and baby

Our pregnancy research targets improved screening methods and preventative treatments for mothers and babies.

INFANT's goal is to develop and test next-generation devices, diagnostics and therapies. These will have a fundamental societal and economic impact, placing Ireland at the fore of pregnancy research. 

INFANT is focused on developing and improving methods of monitoring and medical intervention at birth. The reduction or elimination of adverse events in labour (such as hypotension, seizures and pre-eclampsia) will have a direct impact on long-term population health.

We aim to protect mothers and babies by developing innovative medical devices, diagnostics and therapies.
