Abstract

Preeclampsia is a devastating high blood pressure problem of pregnancy. The only cure is birth of the baby. I believe that the key to understanding why preeclampsia occurs and to better treatments, is to examine the heart in women with preeclampsia using ultrasound and magnetic imaging. Using these safe methods it is anticipated that my research will improve understanding of preeclampsia, lead to better monitoring and the use of different medications to reduce complications in preeclampsia.
