Fetal / paediatric illnesses and environment

Several groups of research identified as emerging converge in this area and, depending on how they evolve in the next 5 years, will become consolidated therein.

Of particular note is the Fetal Medicine group, which focuses its efforts on the study of fetal neurodevelopment. It is driven by the Centre for Maternal/Fetal and Neonatal Medicine of Barcelona (BCNatal), formed by SJD Barcelona Children's Hospital and Hospital Clínic de Barcelona.  This group is fully consolidated and is one of the most active at IDIBAPS. In the near future, this group is expected to acquire its own organisation in our institute, led by Dr. Gómez-Roig.
