A Sensitive Epigenetic Tool for Prediction of Pre-eclampsia

Mahua Choudhury of University of Colorado in the U.S. will develop a database of epigenetic signatures, changes in DNA and proteins caused by non-genetic factors such as poor nutrition, smoking and environmental contaminants, that could be used as predictors of pre-eclampsia. This information will be used to develop a cost- effective diagnostic tool to detect these markers in blood or urine.
