Dr Vogel is an Australian medical doctor with a PhD in maternal and perinatal epidemiology. His research work has primarily focused on maternal and perinatal health issues affecting women and families living in resource-constrained settings, particularly on the major causes of maternal and perinatal morbidity and mortality.
His areas of professional interest are clinical epidemiology, interventional research and systematic reviews. He has led several international research projects on maternal health in low- and middle-income country settings, and developed WHO's latest guidelines on uterotonics for preventing postpartum haemorrhage.
He is currently co-ordinating the WHO ACTION Trials, two multi-country randomised controlled trials on the efficacy of antenatal corticosteroids in hospitals in low-resource countries.
Maternal health research projects
What are you planning to do with your fellowship and how it will help your career?
I am using this travel fellowship to help build new collaborative maternal health research projects, particularly on stillbirth prevention in the Pacific region. It is also helping to support additional professional training in research leadership.
