Clinical Focus and Research
Very early pregnancy in humans, particularly the approximately two and half weeks between conception (fusion of egg and sperm) and when a woman has a positive pregnancy test. Little is known about this stage of pregnancy and studying it is very difficult because a woman does not know she is pregnant at this time, yet several important diseases of pregnancy may begin at this stage. We study this stage by modeling the development of the placenta, the organ through which mother and baby communicate, in the lab.
