Mark Kilby is a clinical scientist working in the field of fetal medicine and therapy. His work focuses upon diverse themes crossing the interface between laboratory-based research and translational clinical trials in valuating diagnostic tests and therapeutic interventions. The laboratory-based work focuses upon aspects of fetal and fetoplacental endocrine/paracrine signalling including the roles of thyroid hormone, glucocorticoids and vitamin D. His group also investigates the cellular immunity (especially T-cell) between the fetoplacental unit and the mother and the control of immunomodulation in human pregnancy. His translational work has focused upon diagnostic accuracy of testing in pregnancy and the evaluation of fetal therapy in singleton and complex multiple pregnancy.

Professor Kilby supervises both clinical and non-clinical doctoral researcher projects.
