Brief description The mother's immune system can tolerate the growth of an ostensibly foreign fetus during pregnancy. We will investigate whether exposure to viral infections either just before or during pregnancy can result in reduced fertility and whether it may affect fetal growth and development. These results will contribute in designing effective interventions to limit any potential detrimental outcomes.
