The National Institute of Biomedical Genomics (NIBMG) is engaged in profiling alterations of cell types in the maternal-fetal interface and identify cell type specific expression signatures in placenta that are associated with placental development using single-cell transcriptomics in the ongoing multicenter study (in collaboration with THSTI and RCB, Faridabad) on “Multi-Omics Signatures of Human Placenta: Real time assessment of underlying mechanisms for prediction of birth outcomes and development,” funded by the Department of Biotechnology, Ministry of Science & Technology, Govt. of India. Applications from motivated post-doctoral researchers with deep interest in the field of single cell transcriptomics and placenta biology are being invited for the following position in this study
Details of the project: The placenta was once considered to be sterile and presence of bacteria in the placenta was a possible trigger for preterm labour. Recent studies have shown that placenta harbours a unique microbiome of non-pathogenic, commensal bacteria and studies evaluating its associations with adverse pregnancy outcomes are available. In the present study, we will first investigate the composition of a healthy placental microbiome in term vs preterm pregnancy to identify the dysbiotic taxa that may be associated with PTB.
