Data, Birth, Babies + Beyond

DMETRE is based on a knowledge-to-action approach in which epidemiological methods are applied to produce maternal and perinatal epidemiological knowledge 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 and Perinatal Health Inequalities

To empirically evaluate the role of social determinants of health on important maternal and perinatal health and services utilization outcomes.

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 the Li Ka Shing Centre for Health Research Innovation at the University of Alberta North Campus, which is located in ᐊᒥᐢᑿᒌᐚᐢᑲᐦᐃᑲᐣ (Amiskwacîwâskahikan) on Treaty 6 territory, the territory of the Papaschase, and the homeland of the Métis Nation.
