Personal profile

Research interests

Our research is focused on the mechanisms of pre-term premature rupture of the human fetal membrane (pPROM), which is associated with 40% of premature births and leading cause of neonatal morbidity and mortality. My laboratory is examining factors that cause premature aging (senescence) of human placenta as a cause of pPROM and prematurity.

Research interests

  • pPROM
  • Pre-term premature rupture of the human fetal membrane
  • premature birth
  • human placenta
