Professor Peter Fleming
Professor of Infant Health & Developmental Physiology
MB,ChB(Bristol), MRCP(RCP), FRCP(Can), FRCP(Lon), PhD(Bristol), FRCPCH
My clinical practice is in the fields of newborn intensive care, developmental assessment and investigation and care of children with sleep-related disorders, particularly involving breathing.
My research is in the areas of developmental physiology, mother/baby interactions (particularly during sleep) and large scale studies of factors contributing to sudden death in infants.
I also have a particular clinical and research interest in the provision of bereavement care to parents after the death of a baby or child.
