Biography

Andrew Melbourne is a Senior Lecturer in Healthcare Technologies at King's College London. His team are implementing imaging studies and computational modelling for supporting novel fetal interventions; for measuring how the placenta is working in the womb; and for helping understand the links between early preterm birth and subsequent outcome. With funding from the Wellcome Trust, Dr Melbourne is working closely with clinicians in a cross-disciplinary, cross-institutional collaboration, to improve our understanding of how the placenta works and how to measure placenta function in conditions such as fetal growth restriction and in twin pregnancies where fetuses share a placenta (@GIFT_Surg). He is also leading the new King's College London MSc programme in Healthcare Technologies based at St Thomas's Hospital (Heathcare Technologies MSc/MRes).
