Grant awarded for TPR research

We're please to announce that the Preeclampsia Foundation received an additional grant for $22,500 from the Community Foundation for Brevard to study the genetics of preeclampsia and its association with cardiovascular disease, both of which dramatically impact the health of women and children.

This grant will extend research funded in 2014 by the Community Foundation to study preeclampsia and its impact on the long-term health of mothers and infants through The Preeclampsia Registry™.

The Community Foundation's initial grant of $30,000 was used to expand The Preeclampsia Registry to include a biobank of DNA samples -- we've collected more than 500 DNA samples since, which is quite an accomplishment!
