About the Project
The overarching theme of this PhD would be to further develop this exciting work, including investigation of the functional role of the myometrial phosphoproteins identified as being important for normal labour in human parturition, and to investigate further the identified signalling pathways.
Methods would include myo-bath studies of human myometrium and metabolomic analysis of maternal and cord blood.
