Research Summary

Our research focuses on the effects of gestational ethanol exposure on placental and fetal development. We examine how gestational ethanol exposure alters placental morphology, trophoblastic cell functions, and insulin and insulin-like growth factor (IGF) signaling pathways.

Past or Present Projects Available:

1) Effects of gestational ethanol exposure on placental development
2) Ethanol impaired energy metabolism and mitochondrial dysfunction in placenta
3) Intraplacental siRNA-AAH delivery
4) Fetal morphology in fetal alcohol spectrum disorders
5) Graded dose effect of gestational ethanol exposure on placental development
6) Effect of late gestational ethanol exposure on fetal and placental development
