Dr Padma Murthi receives fellowship from Ferring Pharmaceuticals

Congratulations to Dr Padma Murthi from The Ritchie Centre who has received a one-year fellowship from Ferring Pharmaceuticals, worth $US 96,000 ($AU 125,000).

Dr Murthi is currently looking at signaling pathways that regulate placental vascular functions in fetal growth restriction and preeclampsia.

This fellowship will allow Dr Murthi to identify a therapeutic target to improve placental vascular functions in preeclampsia, a serious medical complication of pregnancy affecting 5 to 10 per cent of all pregnancies in Australia.
