This project will determine whether maternal CNP concentrations can predict fetal oxygen concentration in a reliable manner that will enable its potential use as a biomarker for the detection of fetal hypoxaemia.
Applicants must meet the University of Auckland's entry criteria for PhD programmes.
The project will involve both an experimental study in sheep with direct measurement of fetal oxygen levels in both healthy and growth-restricted fetuses and an observational cohort in women referred for ultrasound assessment of fetal growth.
