Brief description Preeclampsia is a severe disease of pregnancy - the placenta releases toxins in to mum's bloodstream that circulate her body and damage her organs. As there are no efficacious treatments, clinicians are forced to deliver babies irrespective of gestation. Although the two toxins of preeclampsia have been identified, little is known about their regulation. This project aims to elucidate the regulation of these toxins and design therapeutics that can prevent their release in the clinic.
