Professor Aris Papageorghiou

I studied medicine at the University of Sheffield before becoming a Research Fellow at the Harris Birthright Research Centre for Fetal Medicine at King’s College, where I obtained my MD on large scale population screening for the prediction of pre-eclampsia. I completed my obstetric training in London with specialisation in both Obstetrics & Gynaecology; and subspecialist training in Maternal & Fetal Medicine, whilst a lecturer at St George's, University of London.

I am the Editor-in-Chief for BJOG; National Chair of the Expert Working Group in Obstetrics and Gynaecology in the UK; and a visiting Professor at Capital Medical University in Beijing. At ISUOG I served as Trustee, Chair of the Scientific Committee and as Honorary Secretary, and was awarded the ISUOG fellowship in 2019. I received an Honorary Membership of the American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine, and a Doctor Honoris Causa from the University of Athens.

I divide my time, working clinically at St George’s Hospital in London and as Professor in Fetal Medicine and Obstetrics in Oxford. My clinical special interests include all aspects of fetal medicine and ultrasound, fetal growth and pre-eclampsia, non-invasive and invasive prenatal diagnosis, and fetal therapy.

I lead a number of research projects focused in the areas of maternal, fetal and perinatal health and using diverse methods - including basic science, clinical epidemiology, trials, knowledge transfer and implementation science.
