Brief description The mother's immune system can tolerate the growth of an ostensibly foreign fetus during pregnancy, yet remain vigilant to pathogenic challenge. We will investigate whether exposure to viral infections during early pregnancy leads to maternal and fetal inflammation which then impacts adversely on reproductive outcomes including fetal development and life-long health of offspring. Answers to these questions will contribute in designing effective interventions to limit the potential for detrimental outcomes.
