Adverse pregnancy outcomes preeclampsia and post-partum hemorrhage impacts millions of women and babies, but have been poorly investigated using genetic approaches. Preeclampsia increases risk of cardiometabolic diseases. We are using genetic and omic approaches to investigate maternal and fetal contributions to understand the pathophysiology of these diseases.
Genetics of postpartum hemorrhage (PPH)
In this project, we are studying the genetics of PPH to identify molecular mechanisms underlying PPH and elucidate the underlying pathophysiology.
