Research Summary

Lab has a multifaceted research program focused on answering the question of why some women are predisposed to pregnancy complications. We believe that these problems may originate from abnormal immune and hormonal responses during pregnancy. The hypothesis is that anti-inflammatory intrauterine milieu controlled by cytokines and pregnancy hormones is crucial to fetal development and pregnancy success.

Past or Present Projects Available:

The toxicity of nanosilver and its effects on fetal development; Identification of the mechanism for anomalies in vascular and neuronal development caused by in utero exposure to polychlorinated biphenyls
