Brief description We are investigating how mothers may have health difficulties during pregnancy, such as high blood pressure, and how this can affect their fetuses' health. There is emerging evidence that an unhealthy placenta during pregnancy can greatly affect fetal development, and it seems that inflammation in the placenta during pregnancy may be a key factor in reducing fetal growth, resulting in low birth weight infants. Our studies are aimed at developing new treatments for this.
