Data, Birth, Babies + Beyond

DMETRE is a research program based on a knowledge-to-action approach in which epidemiological methods are applied to produce maternal and perinatal evidence in relation to three main themes:

Developmental Trajectories of Chronic Diseases

To evaluate life course models of gestational and perinatal exposures/events and the development of chronic diseases in both mother and child

Maternal, Perinatal and Early-Childhood Health Inequalities

To evaluate the role of social determinants on maternal, perinatal and early childhood health

Synthesis of Maternal and Perinatal Research Evidence

To produce high-quality systematic reviews and meta-analyses of maternal and perinatal evidence


We are located at Carruthers Hall at Queen's University, which is situated on the unceded territory of Katarokwi, also known by the colonized name of Kingston; traditional lands of the Anishinaabe and the Haudenosaunee peoples. To this day, it continues to be the home of the Anishinaabe and the Haudenosaunee peoples, as well as for a significant Métis community and First Peoples from other Nations across Turtle Island.
