Jane has a PhD from UCL on Urinary pathology in pregnancy. This focussed on problems with diagnosis of UTI in pregnancy, and studied alternative diagnostic tests in pregnant women with abdominal pain and increased risk of preterm birth, with the aim of reframing the meaning of UTI in pregnancy according to clinical outcomes. In her post-doctoral research as Chadburn Clinical Lecturer at UCL she studied outcomes-based and epidemiological approaches to UTI in pregnancy, including a cohort study looking at outcomes following bacteriuria at pregnancy booking. She is now a Consultant in Obstetrics and Fetal Medicine at University Hospitals Bristol and Weston, and continues to collaboratively research UTI in pregnancy. In particular, she is PI for the ongoing national UKOSS study of severe pyelonephritis in pregnancy.
