With the combination of a PhD in Nephrology (UMCG) and Post-doctoral training in preeclampsia field (Harvard), Titia Levy developed a unique translational research line with focus on the kidney during and after hypertensive-complicated pregnancies within Cardiovascular research line of the UMC Utrecht.
Her clinical work as gynaecologist in the Obstetrical department has its focus on Maternal Medicine and especially care for pregnancy in women with kidney disease. As young-PI, she works in close collaboration with the department of Nephrology, Vascular Medicine and Epidemiology (Julius Center). Furthermore, as a result of her post-doctoral period in Groningen several projects are in close collaboration with the UMCG.
It is her aim to improve patient care during and after pregnancy for cardiovascular and renal patients. With her translational research line mainly focussing on the kidney and vascular bed, she hopes to improve with research from bench to bedside and vice-versa renal and pregnancy outcomes in the long run.
