Project type/s Basic Science
Project status Planning/Submitted for approvals

Asthma is the most common disease to affect pregnant women in Australia and is associated with a number of poor outcomes for the mother and fetus. Research suggests asthma during pregnancy can alter placental function and this may be critical for poor foetal outcomes. This study aims to identify how asthma affects placental function.
