Emily Su, MD, MSCI, received her BA from Brown University, Providence, Rhode Island, her MD from the University of Illinois at Chicago and completed her residency in obstetrics and gynecology and her fellowship in maternal-fetal medicine at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine. Dr. Su’s career in healthcare has been inspired by her patients. After caring for several women who had severe, early-onset fetal growth restriction that led to stillbirths, neonatal death and long-term complications from prematurity, she realized that clinical practice paradigms were substantially limited in helping these patients because of a lack of understanding at the tissue, cellular and molecular levels.    


Research + Funding 

In 2017, Dr. Su began her Ludeman Center-funded research project titled, “Characterization of a Specific Endothelial Progenitor Cell Population Within the Human Placenta.” This project was pivotal in her career as it led to additional funding that helped her understand how human placental cell interactions with their stromal environment impact angiogenesis in severe, early-onset fetal growth restriction. She recognizes the Ludeman Center for their support, camaraderie and dedication to rigorous science that impacts women’s health. 


Transforming Women’s Health 

Currently, Dr. Su’s lab is focused on understanding why blood vessel formation fails in severe, early-onset fetal growth restriction.
