  • the placental passage of metformin and pharmacokinetics of metformin
  • hemodynamics and utero-placental circulation in placebo vs metformin exposed mothers and fetuses
  •  steroid hormone, insulin and AMH levels in newborns related to maternal levels
  • Breast development in pregnancy and breast feeding in PCOS and non-PCOS women
  • Possible long-term effects of metformin exposure in utero
  • Pregnancy outcome in twin pregnancies in PCOS women

Other fields of research interest:
