Dr Max Berry

In 2008, Dr Berry was awarded an HRC Fellowship for PhD studies; during the course of her PhD she examined the long-term effects of preterm birth, early nutrition and antenatal corticosteroid exposure on cardiometabolic outcomes in sheep. Dr Berry's research interests include the impact of preterm birth on cardiac autonomic function, vascular function and the development of regional adiposity. In particular, Dr Berry has an interest in translational biomedical research, and the integration of basic sciences with advances in perinatal care. In 2013 Dr Berry was awarded first prize in the Richard Richard Stewart Memorial Prizes for Excellence in Research Presentation by Emerging New Investigators.
