      Breaking Science: A primer on the amazing vascular biology of the placenta

      Learn about the science and technology you hear discussed on the news, from the scientists and engineers who work on the newest discoveries! "Placenta, is that an organ?!?" Despite being a critical part of the development of every human, most people don't spend a lot of time thinking about the placenta. This is a shame, as this underappreciated structure provides developing babies with all the oxygen, nutrients, and fluids they will need, and hides some really amazing secrets. Our speaker will share her expertise on the normal biology of the placenta, as well as what happens when things go wrong. Don't miss this talk! Light snacks and refreshments will be provided!
