Liping Feng, MD, is an Associate Professor in the Division of Reproductive Sciences in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at Duke University Medical Center.
Dr. Feng's research is focused on applying comprehensive molecular and genetic in vitro and in vivo approaches to study the pathogenesis of placenta associated pregnancy complications.
One line of her research is to investigate the impacts of perinatal factors on birth outcomes. These perinatal factors include cesarean section, infection, and environmental chemical exposures such as air pollution, BPA/BPF, PFAS and TCE. The birth outcomes include preeclampsia, thyroid hormone disruption and fetal brain development and immune functions in early life. Her research has focused on understanding these impacts through studying placental development and functions.
Another line of her research is to understand the effects of dysregulated placental signaling on pregnancy outcomes and health of offspring using genetic modified mice models and placental cellular models.
