Collecting placentas from normal pregnancies

Hi HPP team,

 

I would like to suggest that there be a larger effort to collect placentas from normal pregnancies into a biobank that could serve as a resource for investigators carrying out projects on disease states. Ideally, these placentas would have pathology and histopathology findings associated with them, and come from a variety of settings.

Thanks,

lisa

The Human Placenta Project

Standardization of tissue processing and storage in repositories, and collection and sharing of data

A recurring theme throughout the pre-meeting reports is the need to establish standards for generation of repositories of well phenotyped placental tissue samples with collection and storage in a manner that allows comparable analysis utilizing contemporary techniques across different laboratories. Additionally the need for collection of biospecimens across the entirety of normal gestation with collection of appropriate... more »

The Human Placenta Project

characterizing genomic networks of human term placenta in both bulk tissue and cellular resolution

Currently, molecular data (transcriptome, methylome, etc) are lacking for NORMAL (non-pathological) TERM human placentae. Existing public databases usually lack placental data. Although some placental single cell data are available, they are usually derived from early pregnancies or diseased placentae. There is an urgent need to perform thorough molecular characterization of human term placenta from population studies.... more »
