Professor Jane Hirst is a Consultant Obstetrician and Associate Professor in Global Women’s Health at the Nuffield Department of Women’s and Reproductive Health, University of Oxford. She ran her Innovation Forum in December 2022.

This Innovation Forum brought together a multidisciplinary group of researchers, clinicians, data scientists, industry partners, NHS Digital, and others to discuss the opportunities and challenges for improving clinical care using complex clinical data. The workshop focussed on one specific clinical challenge, Gestational Diabetes Mellitus (GDM), with consideration of other data science challenges and solutions in pregnancy care more widely and other clinical conditions.
