From the start of her career as a researcher, the focus lies on pre-and postnatal development in the pig, to unravel the complexity of the consequence of pre-and dysmaturity and, within a one health approach, provide insight into both human medicinal and veterinary disorders related to intrauterine growth retardation. Until now, research activities on this topic were facilitated via 15 research projects. Next to field studies in vitro assays were established to study enterocyte physiology. She is the (co-) author of 146 scientific papers.
