Several members of the UW Ob-Gyn Division of Reproductive Sciences co-authored an article soon to be published in the journal Molecular and Cellular Endocrinology! Ian Bird, PhD,of the UW Ob-Gyn Division of Reproductive Sciences, is senior author.
The article, examined the relationships between vascular endothelial growth factor, VEGF receptors, and more in affecting pregnancy-adapted programming of the vascular system. Pregnancy diseases like preeclampsia and intrauterine growth restriction are caused by a failure of vascular adaptation, making this research even more important.
