Brief description Normal heart development before birth. This project aims to understand how the fetal heart can develop normally with much less oxygen than an adult heart uses. Regulation of fetal heart proliferation is not well understood but changes in oxygen levels and non-coding RNAs are implicated. Using advanced imaging techniques to measure blood flow in blood vessels to the fetal heart and molecular probes to assess cell function and microarrays to measure non-coding RNA, the project expects to generate new knowledge about mechanisms of fetal heart cell proliferation. Ultimately, this new knowledge could lead to non-invasive approaches to detect and treat abnormal fetal heart growth in animals and humans.
