I am delighted to be deputy coordinator of the iPlacenta.
iPLACENTA will improve our ability to study, model and visualise the placenta. Aiming to improve our ability to study the placenta through in vitro and mathematical modelling (WP1&2), whilst enhancing visualisation and assessment of the placenta in animal models and clinical, thus enhancing investigation and prognosis of complicated pregnancies.
iPLACENTA’s three research platforms will fundamentally change how research is conducted in Maternal and Fetal Health and appear to be timely with worldwide call1 for enhancement of placenta understanding and increase in funding in uteroplacental deficiency diseases such as preeclampsia. Through the research aims outlined in iPLACENTA state of the art technology will be delivered to the European community promoting the ability to compete with worldwide initiatives.
