Research Summary

Fetal blood of different gestational ages was tested for immunoreactivity and compared with maternal blood responses to immune stimulators. The data will help with transplatation of stem cells, autoimmune disease,asthma, and preterm birth Mid-trimester amniotic fluid was cultured in various media, frozen, thawed with retention of stem cell function and induced to neural and osteocyte fates. Studies are underway to determine therapeutic effectiveness of transplanting neural progenitors derived from amniotic fluid stem cells in correcting neurological damage. Factors controlling longevity and cell death in amniotic fluid cultures are being studied by Affymetrix gene analysis and quantitative PCR for genes related to senesence.

Research Interests

Luteal phase defects,pregnancy loss, fetal physiology, endoscopic surgery,immunology, stem cells derived from amniotic fluid & umbilical cord blood inducible to a neural fate.
