KudosWe would like to recognize Dr. Ana Palei for her new grant from the American Heart Association. This grant is entitled, "Hypertension, Pregnancy and Hyperleptinemia", and will enable to Dr. Palei to study if higher leptin levels (hyperleptinemia) cause or contribute to links between placental ischemia (restriction in blood supply to the placenta) and hypertension. Both of these conditions are risk factors in the development of preeclampsia, and this study is very important in contributing to our ability to understand and address this element of women's health.
