New model helping identify pregnant women whose previous kidney injury puts them, babies at risk

Young pregnant women, who appear to have fully recovered from an acute injury that reduced their kidney function, have higher rates of significant problems like preeclampsia and low birthweight babies. MCG scientists are working to better understand, identify and ideally avoid this recently identified association.

NASA grant enables scientist to explore ways to keep astronauts’ bones strong in space

The skeleton’s ability to adapt to mechanical loading — the forces put on bone by both gravity and muscle in response to movement — is critical to bone health, and circumstances like spaceflight or a spinal cord injury can interfere, says Dr. Meghan E. McGee-Lawrence, MCG biomedical engineer. With a new grant from NASA, she hopes to better understand how lack of gravity and other causes of disuse affect the usual dynamics of the skeleton, and find ways to restore a healthy dynamic when usual options like increased physical activity and weight lifting are not viable.
