Hypertensive disorders of pregnancy affect up to 10% of pregnancies worldwide, which includes the 4% of all pregnancies complicated by preeclampsia, and are a major cause of maternal mortality and morbidity, preterm birth, perinatal death, and intrauterine growth restriction.

​The symposium's aim is to give early-career researchers an opportunity to showcase their work. Guest speakers, experts in the field of placental research and pregnancy complications, will share their expertise by giving plenary talks and participate in the discussion groups.
