An international leader in research in pregnancy and fetal development, UniSA's Early Origins of Adult Health Research Group (EOAHRG) is engaged in important projects determining how events before birth have an impact on health later in life.
The group uses a range of models and analytical techniques to investigate how the physiological environment from before conception and during pregnancy can contribute to a range of conditions in adulthood such as obesity, diabetes and cardiovascular disease.
Established as part of the Sansom Institute for Health Research in 2005, the EOAHRG brings together a research team with an international track record in developmental physiology, epigenetics and endocrinology. The group's research is focused in three broad areas: the early origins of obesity and metabolic health, the periconceptional environment and the embryo, and development of a healthy heart and cardiorespiratory system.
The Early Origins of Adult Health Research Group has several research students working on a variety of interesting projects. For more information about our students please visit the research students page.
