I'm currently a third year graduate student in Dr. Jeffrey Osborn's lab. My research focuses on hypertensive pregnancy disorders. Our lab works with a novel nonhuman primate model of spontaneous hypertenson. We have recently discovered that the African Green Monkey, or AGM, also develops spontaneous gestational hypertension as well as postpartum hypertension. As hypertensive pregnancy disorders are a leading cause of maternal mortatlity worldwide, with 99% of maternal deaths occuring in developing countries, a model similar to humans is critical to translational research.
