APS Annual Meeting at Experimental Biology

Impact of Complicated Pregnancy on Cardiovascular Function of the Adult Offspring

Featured Topic — Wednesday, April 28, 2021 — 10:00 AM - 11:30 AM — Virtual Session, Room APS-11
Water and Electrolyte Homeostasis Section — Chair: Analia S Loria — Co-Chair: Sandra Davidge

This sesion will provide updated overlook of a number of mechanisms by which adverse factors in utero shape the cardiovascular function of the adult offspring.
