Times shown are in GMT (UTC +0) up to the 26th March. For events on or after 27th March times are in BST (UTC +1).

Lecture Theatre, Trinity Hall, CB2 1TJ

Pre-eclampsia can have a devastating impact on women and their unborn child or children during pregnancy. However, it is becoming increasingly recognised that the effects of pre-eclampsia can remain with a woman throughout her life-course, placing her at an increased risk of heart disease and high blood pressure, well into her future. Is it pre-eclampsia that causes these effects? Or is pre-eclampsia simply a marker of an over-stressed system during pregnancy?

This talk will explore the puzzling relationship between pregnancy, pre-eclampsia and women’s long-term cardiovascular health, and explain how the University of Cambridge-led POPPY study hopes to provide answers to some of these questions.
