TRANSLATING ADVANCES IN CELL-FREE FETAL NUCLEIC ACIDS INTO BETTER PERINATAL CARE
Grant number: 1105603 | Funding period: 2016 - 2019
My overall aim is to translate advances in biotechnology into better care for pregnant women. My first aim is to study brain development by analyzing the fluid that surrounds the unborn baby. This work may provide more information to women about their baby’s expected outcome. My second aim is to evaluate the impact of new DNA technologies on the detection of genetic conditions in the baby before birth. This work will confirm if this new generation of tests is fulfilling our high expectations.
