The mission and vision of the lab is to investigate basic physiopathologic mechanisms of pediatric and fetal surgical congenital malformations and to discover solutions or therapeutic strategies for unresolved problems in the treatment of these anomalies. Translational research is our way to achieve these goals.
The main areas of research in the Peiró lab are myelomeningocele, commonly referred to as spina bifida, and congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH). His research interests also include fetal cleft lip-palate, amniotic bands, gastroschisis, cell therapy and tissue engineering. Dr. Peiró’s research group has developed several animal models for intrauterine correction of different fetal conditions and promotes translational research for human clinical application.
