Title: Microvesicles and exosomes released by amnion epithelial cells under oxidative stress cause inflammatory changes in uterine cells
Pr. Menon will present his work exploring the role of fetal cells-derived extracellular vesicles in feto-maternal communication. His winning article demonstrated that exosomes and microvesicles (MVs) under oxidative stress (OS) carry unique cargo and traffic through feto-maternal interface, which cause inflammation in uterine cells associated with parturition.About the BOR Winners Webinar Series:The BOR 2021 Research Article Awards Webinar Series is designed to highlight research from the 2021 Biology of Reproduction Awards Winners for research articles.Each webinar will be scheduled for 1 hour and will feature a 10-minute introduction by an invited moderator, a 30-40 min talk by the lead author, and 10-20 min for questions and answers.
