Summary This project will involve laboratory studies on novel proteins we have identified as deranged in the circulation of women carrying a small baby.
Fetal growth restriction occurs when a baby fails to reach its predetermined growth capacity during pregnancy. It is a leading contributor to stillbirth, a devastating tragedy that effects 1:130 pregnancies in Australia.
Our laboratory has identified numerous proteins that are deranged in the maternal circulation of women carrying a small baby. This project will involve laboratory studies to ascertain the function of these novel proteins and begin to elucidate their contribution to the pathogenesis of this pregnancy complication.
