Research Description

As a high-risk obstetrician/physician-scientist, Dr. Su’s research lab is focused on understanding mechanisms that underlie both normal and abnormal placental blood flow. Specifically, in pregnancies complicated by severe fetal growth restriction where there is significant evidence of fetoplacental vascular dysfunction as clinically detected by absent or reversed fetal umbilical artery Doppler parameters, there is substantial risk for adverse outcomes. Clinical evidence repeatedly suggests that both perinatal and long-term outcomes are minimally affected by current obstetric management paradigms, demonstrating the need to better understand cellular and molecular mechanisms underlying these placental findings in severe fetal growth restriction.
