About Us

The D-METRE Lab integrates a translational epidemiological approach to the study of maternal and perinatal health outcomes. D-MTRE is based on a knowledge-to-action approach in which epidemiological methods are applied to produce maternal and perinatal evidence.

The main research directions and activities of the D-METRE Lab fall within the following three themes:

  1. Integration of a life-course epidemiological approach to understand the gestational and perinatal precursors of chronic diseases in both mothers and babies.
  2. Pathways towards inequalities in Indigenous maternal and perinatal Health.
