The placenta is the least understood human organ and arguably one of the more important organs in the body, not only for the health of a woman and her fetus during pregnancy but also for the lifelong health of both. To address this lack of knowledge, the NICHD believes a concerted effort, the Human Placenta Project, would make substantial inroads.
The goals of the 5th Annual Human Placenta Project Meeting are to bring together a group of broad thinkers that includes technical subject matter experts, placental biologists, and clinicians to:
-Discuss how to achieve the HPP goals
-Highlight the progress to date of HPP funded projects through presentations, posters, and demonstrations
-Provide thought-provoking presentations to inspire current and potential grantees to think about the HPP’s future directions, with a particular emphasis on translation of HPP research into the clinic and into low-resource settings.
