The research interests of Aoife M. Egan, M.B., B.Ch., Ph.D., include diabetes before, during and after pregnancy. Her current work focuses on gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM). GDM is typically diagnosed in the late second trimester of pregnancy and is associated with an increased risk of adverse pregnancy outcomes. While GDM tends to resolve after pregnancy, women with GDM have a very high risk of developing type 2 diabetes in the future.
Dr. Egan's research seeks to address unanswered questions regarding pathogenesis and risk of type 2 diabetes in women with GDM.
Dr. Egan's research will provide valuable insights into the pathogenesis of GDM and long-term risk of type 2 diabetes in women who develop GDM. This will facilitate the development of interventions to effectively treat those at greatest risk. Dr. Egan works with a collaborative team of scientists and clinicians with the shared objective of improving outcomes for women and their children.
