Dr. Seow's primary research interests are in the pharmacokinetics of biologic therapies in IBD and materno-fetal outcomes in IBD. Her first major publication (Gut 2010) established the role of therapeutic drug monitoring in acute ulcerative colitis.  Dr. Seow runs the University of Calgary IBD pregnancy clinic which was established September 2012 providing preconception counselling and ongoing follow up of pregnant women with IBD, with a linked research registry and biorepository. Dr. Seow is the co-author of the Canadian Association of Gastroenterology endorsed 'Toronto Consensus Statements for the Management of IBD in Pregnancy' which was published in ‘Gastroenterology’ in March 2016. Recently, she combined her two major research interests by publishing on 'The effects of pregnancy on the pharmacokinetics of infliximab and adalimumab in inflammatory bowel disease' in 'Alimentary Pharmacology and Therapeutics' (May 2017).
