INFANT Centre Launch

INFANT:  Irish Centre for Fetal and Neonatal Translational Research

MedSciNet was invited to participate in the launch of INFANT: The Irish Centre for Fetal and Neonatal Translational Research. The launch took place on September 20, 2013 at Cork University Hospital in Cork, Ireland.

Founded upon over a decade of collaborative research and a diverse array of national and international academic and industry partnerships, INFANT is a world-class research centre with focus on discovery and innovation in perinatal healthcare.

In addition to examining the causes of premature birth and studying perinatal complications such as preeclampsia, spontaneous preterm birth, and fetal growth restriction, INFANT addresses the largely unmet worldwide clinical need for effective screening tests for the most common complications of pregnancy and the most significant problems for newborn babies.
