Thesis

Cellular and molecular mechanisms of maternal immune response in early pregnancy

The aim of this project is to develop computational models that describe the key signaling pathways that regulate the interaction between placental cells (trophoblasts) and maternal immune cells present at the interface between the uterus and placenta (specifically uterine/decidual natural killer cells which make up 75-80% of the immune cells in human and primate tissue at this interface).
