Research interests

Dana Muin’s main research interest focuses on antepartum fetal death and placental dysfunction leading to intrauterine growth restriction and eventually stillbirth.

In 2018, she worked one year at the Tommy’s Stillbirth Research Centre in Manchester, UK, under the academic supervision of Professor Alexander Heazell and received a Master of Research in Reproduction and Pregnancy from The University of Manchester.  

Currently, she is head of the Stillbirth Research Group at the Medical University of Vienna, collaborating with national and international researchers on epidemiological data and conducting laboratory investigations in the field of placental dysfunction. She has established a national registry in cooperation with the Institute of Clinical Epidemiology at Tirol Kliniken, Austria ("IUFT Register Österreich"). 

Dana Muin's main interest lies in finding the cause of fetal death and implementing evidence-based guidelines for optimal post-mortem investigations following intrauterine fetal death in Austria.
