The INFANT study has been featured on the MoreTrials website under a series called ‘Trials that matter’. The INFANT study, which involved NPEU researchers Ed Juszczak, Louise Linsell and Maria Quigley, recruited more than 47,000 women and assessed whether automated computerised interpretation of the fetal heart rate during labour improved major outcomes such as neonatal death and child development at age 2.
We are pleased to announce the appointment of Professor Maria Quigley as the Director of Graduates Studies (DGS) for postgraduate research students in the Nuffield Department of Population Health (NDPH). Maria is a statistical epidemiologist and senior researcher in NPEU. She currently supervises several DPhil students and teaches on the MSc in Global Health Science. She assumes her new role in January 2018, succeeding Professor Sasha Shepperd, who steps down at the end of 2017. Associate Professor Jonathan Emberson will continue to serve as Deputy DGS.
Louise Linsell, Senior Medical Statistician from NPEU, will be presenting the latest results from the EPICURE study, “Born at the threshold of viability: impact on cognitive development into adulthood” (2nd November). Associate Professor Ed Juszczak will also be attending the conference, if you're there, please come and say hello!
Louise has two related articles on cognitive and behavioural trajectories in the EPICURE cohort should be published in the very near future.
We are pleased to announce that Dr Gracia Fellmeth has received the Ruth Bowden Award from the British Federation of Women Graduates (BFWG) in recognition of her DPhil research on perinatal depression among migrant women on the Thai-Myanmar border.
