The preeclampsia research team is continuing to investigate the links between high blood pressure and cardiovascular disease in women especially around the time of pregnancy. Together with our committed mothers, we have been able to identify factors coming form the placenta which lead to damage in the mother's blood vessels and high blood pressure.

These factors are potential markers for future blood pressure problems in these women.  We are also interested in how these factors ink with other compounds which are know to cause heart disease.

 

We are utilizing the MRI (magnetic ) to investigate the structural and function a changes to the placenta in experimental modes of this disease. as well as gaining further insight into preeclampsia these studies may yield non-invasive methods  for the early detection of preeclampsia.

 

Work done in collaboration with the Heart Research Institute (Sydney), and colleagues at Beth Israel Deaconess (Boston) and University of Lund (Sweden) are also examining mechanisms of placental dysfunction in preeclampsia.
