Dr. Garrido and team to present at SRI meeting their latest developments within HUTER

Date: January 12th 2022

Dr. Tamara Garrido & PhD student Irene Muñoz and team with the abstract titled “Single-cell atlas of defective decidualization in preeclampsia reveals different endometrial cell composition”, has been selected for an oral presentation in a concurrent oral session at the Society for Reproductive Investigation’s 69th Annual Scientific Meeting.

The talk will take place at the preeclampsia session on March 18th 2022. This year the event will take place in Denver on March 15-19 2022.

HUTER researchers involved in the study: Garrido-Gómez T, Muñoz-Blat I, Castillo-Marco N, Roson B, Perez R, Cordero T, Lozano C, Ochando A, Monfort R, Climent R and Carlos Simón (Project Coordinator).

The SRI organizers have developed an outstanding theme of Reaching New Heights in Reproductive Research, with a focus on health disparities and diversity, equity and inclusion. The scientific program includes 160 Oral Sessions, 12 invited Mini-Symposia with a great balance of investigators, invited Lunch and Learn Symposia and a Hot Topics Plenary Session. The meeting also will feature inspiring talks.

In addition to the scientific sessions, SRI will host numerous Career Development activities including the Career Development Workshops followed by Mentor-in-a-Cloud, an Early Career Forum and a Mid-Career Forum, as well as the highly successful Connection Corners.

As always, the 69th Annual SRI Meeting will be highly collegial and provide a forum for outstanding science and the opportunity for fruitful global networking.

About the Human Uterus Cells Atlas – HUTER

The human uterus is a flagship reproductive organ with profound implications not only in reproduction but also in women´s health. HUTER can advance the Human Cell Atlas initiative for the exploitation potential in Obstetrics and Gynecology and biomedicine research areas such as Regenerative Medicine or Reproductive Medicine.

The uterus is itself a model for regenerative medicine since (i) endometrial tissue regenerates monthly and its transformation is executed through dynamic changes in states and interactions of multiple cell types, and (ii) myometrial tissue has remarkable regenerative capacity and extensive remodelling throughout pregnancy. Hence, the primary motivation HUTER proposal stems from the need to better understand the human uterus in order to more effectively address uterine diseases that impact women ́s health such as myomas or endometriosis and/or might contribute to infertility, infant and maternal mortality and morbidity such as preeclampsia.

HUTER technological and biological platform will be a crucial resource for the scientific and clinical communities to define the cellular basis of health and disease, allowing the rapid development of new diagnosis and prognosis tools and therapeutic advancements in the field.
