Dr. Schlarbitz-Lutsevich work involves studying placenta. The placenta plays an important role in the interface between mother and child. Studying the physiology/chemistry changes associated with the placenta during pregnancy can give clues to the health of both the mother and the child. This research could eventually lead to implanted sensors to monitor these changes and give early warnings for at-risk pregnancies.
Topic: "What Do You Need to Know About Placenta"
