Understanding the Mechanisms of Preeclampsia and Postpartum Hypertension


Our research focuses on elucidating the underlying renal mechanisms in the development of preeclampsia and postpartum hypertension. Current work in the lab is investigating the contribution of the inflammation (T cells) and reactive oxygen species to the renal dysfunction observed during pregnancy leading to preeclampsia. Research is conducted utilizing a combination of animal models, in vivo and in vitro experimental approaches to understand the renal dysfunction in preeclampsia in the hopes of finding a therapeutic target.
