Maria Coates

Trials Administrator

I am currently providing administrative support for clinical trials in the Cardiovascular and Renal Theme in the Clinical Trials Unit.

BUMP is the main trial I am working on.  The research is based on raised blood pressure (BP) in pregnancy.  Raised BP affects 10% of pregnancies worldwide, of which a high proportion develop pre-eclampsia.  Around 15% of maternal mortality is due to pre-eclampsia, so early detection and prevention is paramount.  Self-monitoring of BP in pregnancy could improve the detection of gestational hypertensive disorders including pre-eclampsia.
