Fetoplacental Angiogenic Mechanisms Related To Fetal Growth Restriction And Preeclampsia

This ongoing project has been investigating the angiogenic mechanisms underlying fetal growth restriction and preeclampsia. Our objective is to develop prenatal biomarkers that may potentially contribute to improved clinical management of these conditions, and to innovate novel therapeutic intervention strategies.

Biomedical Projects

This includes several subprojects: (a) development of functional fetal echocardiography; (b) novel Doppler ultrasound approaches for fetal hemodynamic assessment; and (c) development of electromyography of uterine activity.

Development of Novel Eicosanoids for Tocolysis. 

This project has been developed in close collaboration with Kansas City VA Research Department.
