Jo James The Annual Scientific Meeting of the Endocrine Society of Australia and the Society for Reproductive Biology 2013

Jo James

Jo leads interdisciplinary research focussed around how the placenta develops in normal pregnancy, and how this is altered in fetal growth restriction. Her team's work combines the use of stem cell tools, functional vascular studies, ex vivo and in vivo imaging and computational modelling to tease apart the relationships between cell and tissue level changes and organ scale function of the pregnant uterus. She is working to use this understanding to help improve our ability to predict which pregnancies are at risk of fetal growth restriction, and identify ways to therapeutically improve placental function in at risk pregnancies. Her work has been funded by grants from the Marsden Fund, Health Research Council, Royal Society Catalyst Fund, Auckland Medical Research Foundation and CureKids. Jo is the on the Executive Committee of the International Federation of Placenta Associations (IFPA), is the Secretary of ANZPRA, an Associate Editor of Human Reproduction Update, and on the editorial board of Placenta.
