Pregnancy is a beautiful example of immunological regulation where several changes occur in the immune system of the mother that allow her to tolerate the fetus (semi-allogenic graft) and viceversa. Our research is focused on the study of immunobiological pathways in pregnancy and pregnancy-related pathologies, with an emphasis on preterm labor.
