Laura Goodfellow, Clinical Research Fellow, University of Liverpool
Laura Goodfellow is an NIHR Clinical Lecturer at the Harris-Wellbeing Research Centre, University of Liverpool. Her primary research interest is prediction, prevention, and optimisation of preterm birth. Her MD focused on the role of the vaginal microbiota in recurrent early preterm birth and found an increased bacterial load associated with adverse outcome. Laura is planning to develop three areas of interest over her lectureship: the role of infection and inflammation in preterm birth; interpretation and dissemination of UKOSS data about extremely preterm prelabour rupture of membranes; and improving maternity staff experience to psychological trauma in the workplace.
