Pharmacogenomics Of Aed Associated Birth Defects

Grant number: 1059858 | Funding period: 2014 - 2016



This project will investigate for genes that determine why certain women have an increased risk of having a baby with a birth defect if they become pregnant while being treated with a medication for epilepsy. Subjects will be recruited from the Australian Pregnancy Register, the findings validated using subjects from the UK Epilepsy and Pregnancy Register. The study will comprehensively examine for both common and rare changes in genes across the entire human genome.
