Timothy Moss, PhD

  • Country: Australia

Dr. Tim Moss is a physiologist specializing in perinatal development and preterm birth. Dr. Moss is part of The Ritchie Centre's Fetal, Neonatal, and Child Health Group. More than 20,000 Australian babies are born preterm (before 37 completed weeks of gestation) each year; many of these babies face life threatening illnesses which can result in long term disability. Infection or inflammation within the womb is common in pregnancies that end in preterm birth and is associated with many of the diseases faced by preterm infants. The goal of Dr. Moss's studies is to provide a basis for the intervention aimed at providing protection from the damaging effects of inflammation before birth.
