Hypertension, preeclampsia, renal and cardiovascular disease in pregnancy

This collection in Biology of Sex Differences, featuring original research and short review articles, focuses on associative, mechanistic, and translational studies linking pregnancy, pregnancy hypertension, preeclampsia, renal and cardiovascular diseases as they relate to pregnancy outcomes, placental factors, development of hypertension, congenital diseases and adverse fetal outcomes. The editors encourage submission of both basic science research using animal models and clinically relevant translational studies involving human subjects.
