  Sounds in the womb: fetal reactions to what they hear
  Dr N Reissland
Applications accepted all year round

Fetuses can hear from around the 23rd week of gestation. They are exposed to a variety of language and non-language sounds in the womb.
  Mechanisms behind fetal vascular dysfunction in diabetic pregnancies
  Dr L Leach
Applications accepted all year round

The placenta is responsible for sustaining fetal life and enabling fetal growth during pregnancy. It is characterised by a unique complex arrangement of densely packed fetal blood vessels drawing oxygen and nutrients from maternal blood.
  Phenotyping placental disease in women with diabetes and chronic hypertension using transcriptomic analysis
  Dr J Myers, Dr E Johnstone
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

Placental disease triggers medically-indicated preterm birth in 1 in 6 pregnancies complicated by chronic hypertension and/or diabetes (cardiometabolic disease).
  The eyes have it: fetal reactions to visual stimulation
  Dr N Reissland

Funding Type

PhD Type

The womb is not entirely dark and hence fetuses can perceive light. It is not clear what fetuses might be able to perceive and in what detail they might be able to “see” which has implications for cognitive development.
  Investigating the mechanisms contributing to placental dysfunction in pregnancies complicated by diabetes: role of the hexosamine biosynthetic pathway
  Prof M Westwood, Prof J Aplin, Dr J Myers
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Maternal diabetes is a major risk factor for fetal overgrowth, which is associated with poor outcomes including stillbirth, neonatal morbidity and increased risk of diabetes in adulthood.

A fundamental question in disease research is how stressors experienced during critical developmental periods influence the genesis or ‘programming’ of adult disease (Estes & McAllister 2016).
