National Institutes of Health Commit $2 Million to Promote Placental Research

Última actualización el Jueves, Agosto 07, 2014

    This month, the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) and the National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering (NIBIB) reissued two funding announcements, inviting grant applications for the development of methods to assess placental development and function. The Institutes intend to commit an estimated total of $2 million to small businesses in 2015 to support this research.

Specifically, NICHD and NIBIB are interested in research on safe, non-invasive (or minimally invasive) methods for assessing the human placenta during pregnancy, in real time. This research supports the goals of the Human Placenta Project, which aims to learn more about the placenta to improve the lifelong health of women and children.

"Preeclampsia was very well represented in the Human Placenta Project discussion and recognized as a major disease of the placenta," said Ananth Karumanchi, MD, a member of the Preeclampsia Foundation Medical Advisory Board. Dr. Karumanchi is a researcher who represented the Foundation at the planning meeting for the Human Placenta Project.
