Elsa Lorthe "Obstetrical, perinatal and pediatric epidemiology unit"

Fellow 2016 L'Oréal-Unesco For Women In Science, Elsa Lorthe is working on prematurity, the main cause of infant mortality.

Prematurity is the main cause of infant mortality and neurological disability in the under-fives. Each year, 60,000 children are born prematurely in France. Currently researching her PhD in the Obstetrical, Perinatal and Paediatric Epidemiology team at INSERM, Elsa Lorthe has an ambition to provide solid epidemiological data in order to optimise treatment strategies for women with pathological pregnancies, to improve the survival rate in premature babies and reduce the risk of after-effects. “In the context of my research project, using EPIPAGE2 data [a vast French epidemiological study], I analyse different aspects of antenatal treatment: clinical monitoring, the treatments administered and their methods, or the choice of the birth method, in combination with the complications developed by the baby after the birth”, says the young researcher, a trained clinical midwife, who has embarked on her research career following an influential meeting with a doctor-researcher.
