We are recruiting a highly motivated postdoctoral researcher to study the role of complement activation in preeclampsia pathology. Our laboratory aims to understand, at the molecular level, how dysregulated complement activation during pregnancy contributes to 1) maternal complications associated with preeclampsia and 2) short- and long-term health and disease of fetus/offspring. We will employ in vitro, cell culture, and rodent animal models to understand the complex interplay between complement activation and maternal/fetal molecular physiology.
