Center for Fetal Diagnostics develops and implements new methods into fetal diagnostics and follow detection rates of fetal disorders over time. Further, our interdisciplinary approach also includes qualitative research in patient perspectives in close collaboration with the clinic.

We investigate pharmacological treatment during pregnancy and lactation. The projects are based on multidisciplinary, international collaborations within biomedicine, clinical medicine and epidemiology. We examine specific drugs, and develop an information system covering all medications.

Our research goal is to gain knowledge on how endocrine changes, diet and lifestyle influence fertility and reproductive outcome. We perform clinical research in relation to fertility treatment, basic science, intervention studies, as well as epidemiological research, all leading to new insight.

Our research goal is to gain knowledge on gynecological precancer and cancer, with a special interest in cervical cancer prevention, diagnostics, and treatment. Current projects aim to optimize clinical management of women with cervical precancer and gain more knowledge on HPV natural history.

Our goal is to optimize asparaginase therapy of acute lymphoblastic leukemia (age 1-45 years) by studying the pharmacokinetics, the pharmacodynamics and toxicities related to the treatment for the improvement of the relapse-free survival and reduction of acute toxicities and late effects.

During pregnancy, profound changes in the maternal physiology and metabolism take place. These changes may lead to maternal or fetal morbidity. We explore disease entities such as diabetes, liver and heart diseases during pregnancy in order to improve the treatment of pregnancy related conditions.

Epidemiological research on maternal health and child health: we aim to quantify the association of maternal health during or before pregnancy with long-term health in the offspring. We use the data from national registers from five Nordic countries to establish a large follow-up study.

We investigate the genetic background, pathophysiology and optimal treatment of childhood urinary incontinence with a special interest in nocturnal enuresis (bedwetting). Our goal is to tailor the treatment of bladder and bowel dysfunction for the individual child securing dry days and nights.

As a disease can not be isolated from the person suffering from it, patient care represents an important element of all treatment. We research pre- and postoperative care, symptom relief, follow-up, patient involvement, and psychosocial support using qualitative as well as quantitative methods.

Our research is focusing on prenatal diagnostics and prediction/prevention of pregnancy complications. In Centre for Fetal Diagnostics we work in interdisciplinary teams: Clinical Genetics, Anthropology, Fetal Medicine to develope genetic and diagnostic tools for prenatal diagnosis and treatment.

Our research group study reproductive health and childbirth. We use quantitative and qualitative methods to increase our knowledge. Our goal is to ensure the appropriate balance between health promotion, prevention, and treatment to gain optimal public health and maintaining autonomy for the individual.
