Dr. Seethram’s research interests include placental function and the impact of early placental disorders on expression of placental proteins. He is also interested on the impact of the early endometrium on implantation, and currently is participating in a multicentre trial on the effect of the endometrium and its bacterial balance on pregnancy rates.
He is also interested on the impact of fertility treatments on women, couples, and families and has a keen interest on ensuring that people receive practical and productive advice, while keeping evidence-based practice at the centre of care.
