RESEARCH

My research interests  are common  disorders of pregnancy: pre-eclampsia, fetal growth restriction, and gestational diabetes mellitus. The impact of these disorders is not limited to merely obstetric and pediatric domains. They are also associated with increased risk of morbidity in later life of both the mother and the child. We investigate susceptibility genes, molecular mechanisms, risk factors, and implications to later life of these pregnancy disorders.
