Dr Saraid McIlvride
- Research Associate (Public Health)
I am based in the Public Health unit within the School of Health and Wellbeing, having recently returned to research as a Daphne Jackson Research Fellow, funded by Medical Research Scotland. I have a PhD in Women's Health Research from King's College London, investigating the changes in glucose and lipid metabolism in normal and pathological pregnancy.
I am interested in maternal and child health, and the long-term impact of pregnancy on mother and offspring. My current project is looking at associations between in utero exposures and health and educational outcomes in children, using routinely collected health data.
