Louise Laurent's Biography

Louise Laurent, Associate Professor, University of California-San Diego

Louise Laurent is Associate Professor in Reproductive Medicine at the University of California, San Diego. She received her residency training in Obstetrics and Gynecology and her clinical fellowship training in Maternal Fetal Medicine at UC San Diego. Her graduate research at UCSF included a large scale mutagenesis and molecular tracking strategy to define the regions of the HIV genome necessary for viral replication in the laboratory of Patrick O. Brown, M.D. / Ph.D. As a clinical fellow, she worked with Jeanne Loring, Ph.D. at The Scripps Research Institute to delineate the expression of miRNAs in human embryonic stem cells. Her current research focuses on applying genomic and epigenomic methods to understanding the molecular regulation of pluripotency and differentiation, optimizing the preclinical and clinical utility of human pluripotent stem cells, and identifying the molecular basis of placental dysfunction in human pregnancy.

Placental dysfunction, most commonly manifested as preeclampsia or intrauterine growth restriction, is an important cause of maternal and fetal morbidity and mortality in both the developing and developed world. It is thought that placental dysfunction arises from abnormal trophoblast differentiation and/or invasion, events that occur in the first trimester of pregnancy, but become clinically apparent only in the late second and third trimesters. Optimal surveillance and management of placental dysfunction, as well as the development of effective therapies, have been hampered by the lack of methods for early and accurate identification of pregnancies at risk for this disorder.  We will discuss pregnancy-specific ExRNA profiles and the potential for ExRNAs as biomarkers for placental dysfunction and other adverse pregnancy outcomes.
