Lewis Blood flow (dys)regulation and transfer function in the human placenta: an integrated in silico and ex vivo approach to fetal growth restriction

Project overview

This project was an interdisciplinary collaboration with the university of Manchester which investigated how blood flow in the placenta affected oxygen and nutrient transfer. Babies whose placentas do not work effectively may be born to small which may lead to poor health.
