Jane E Norman


Jane Norman is Professor of Maternal and Fetal Health, and Deputy Director of the Centre for Reproductive Health in the University of Edinburgh. She is also the Director of the Edinburgh Tommy's Centre, which aims to conduct world class research that will have a direct impact on the health of pregnant women and their babies and to translate research into improved health outcomes both locally and worldwide.


Professor Normans research work focuses on the pregnancy “stressors” of obesity, maternal depression/stress, inflammation and hypoxia. These pregnancy stressors are largely responsible for the clinical conditions of gestational diabetes, preterm birth and stillbirth, all of which have devastating effects on pregnant women and their babies. Professor Normans group aims to understand how these pregnancy stressors cause these clinical conditions and to develop preventive and therapeutic strategies, using methods from basic science and animal models to clinical trials and population based research.
