The group has established a pioneering programme on detection of congenital heart defects and chromosome abnormalities. They are also investigating the long-term impact of an adverse environment during gestation for maternal and child health (growth restriction, preeclampsia, prematurity, breast cancer during pregnancy). Its other lines of research are dedicated to the effects that obesity or breast cancer may have on pregnancy.

They do it together with a competitive multidisciplinary network dedicated to educating and training research personnel, with the ultimate aim of creating value in the field of maternal and foetal health.
