Research Summary

The Ozanne group investigates the effect of maternal diet-induced obesity on offspring health, and is looking into interventions that may prevent this developmental programming. During my PhD, I will be investigating the immediate and long-term effects of prenatal metformin treatment on the cardiometabolic health of offspring from obese dams, specifically focusing on the cardiovascular system and adipose tissue. My PhD is funded by the British Heart Foundation.
