Current research

Dr Poore's research focuses on how the environment both before we are born and in our early years can influence our life-long health - the field of Developmental Origins of Health and Disease (DOHaD). She has a particular interest in the effect of early life nutrition and exposure to environmental toxicants and climate change on the later risk of non-communicable diseases. As a fetal physiologist Dr Poore's work contributes to our understanding of  the mechanisms involved in DOHaD. She has disseminated her research findings at national and international level and has influenced international policy through an advisory role at the World Health Organisation.
