Boeldt earns UPH-Meriter Foundation grant for preeclampsia research

Exciting news from Derek Boeldt, PhD, assistant professor in the UW Ob-Gyn Division of Reproductive Sciences: he received a UnityPoint Health-Meriter Foundation grant for the project “Developing a Novel Diagnostic Test for the Early Detection of Preeclampsia”!

The grant will support a research project that will investigate a novel approach to develop specific biomarkers for early and efficient detection of preeclampsia. Preeclampsia is a major disorder of pregnancy that has severe health effects on mother and baby. Currently, there are no effective cures for this disorder or biomarkers that can be used for early clinical diagnosis.

Congratulations, Dr. Boeldt!
