Who we are?

“A translational research team in maternal and fetal medicine”

BCNatal Fetal Medicine Research Center is integrated with BCNatal, a functionally unified clinical area resulting from the merger of the two largest maternal-fetal medicine departments in Barcelona (Hospital Clínic and Hospital Sant Joan de Déu, University of Barcelona).
Our main strategic lines are fetal programming, new technologies and improving the clinical management of pregnancy complications.


Main research areas

Fetal medicine opens a window of intervention that until a few years ago did not exist. Thanks to research, it will be possible to improve the health of future generations from the beginning of life.

Main projects

Fetal quality of life determines health for the rest of life. Fetal medicine is an opportunity to rewrite the future and it does so by seeking solutions, mainly to extreme prematurity, fetal malformations and fetal programming.


Since 2010 we have collected all our achievements in a report on activities.
Since then we are one of the few research teams with their own annual report.
