Janneke van 't Hooft

Postdoctoral Fellow

Janneke van 't Hooft completed her PhD in medicine at Academic Medical Center (AMC) in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. Her PhD focused on improving evaluation research in obstetrics.  Alongside her research she is also a clinician and working at the department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology at the AMC. As a medical doctor she is confronted daily with the burden of preterm birth, which is the single most important cause of perinatal mortality and morbidity. While the volume published research on preterm birth is increasing, effective interventions for women (and their offspring) to actually prevent preterm birth are still lacking, preterm birth rates are rising and potentially effective interventions remain largely unevaluated. At METRICS she is therefore working on identifying research waste in preterm birth prevention to increase the effectiveness and value of research investments in this area.
