Dr Olivia Holland investigates women’s health during pregnancy, mitochondria in the placenta, and placental response to physiological stress, to help develop new treatments for pregnancy complications.

Awarded the 2019 Lions Medical Research Foundation Fellowship, Olivia’s study over the next three years focuses on gestational diabetes and examining links to major health problems like type 2 diabetes that affect the ongoing wellbeing of mother and child.

Olivia is passionate about communicating scientific findings on pregnancy, preeclampsia, and diabetes to academics and the general public; enabling effective research and empowering women and their families to make good health choices.
