We are pleased to announce that Drs. Dan Wang (GU) and Rachel Scott (GU) were awarded an R21 from the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health & Human Development (NICHD) at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) entitled "Placental Microvasculature in Pregnancies Complicated by HIV". 
 
This pilot study seeks to better understand and manage the underlying placental pathophysiology associated with adverse neonatal outcomes in pregnant women living with HIV. The project builds from Dr. Wang's R01 on "Accelerated Aging of Microvessels and Perivascular Adipose Tissue in Women with HIV".
