Please join us virtually! We will discuss what preeclampsia is and the signs and symptoms to watch for in pregnancy, as well as how it’s managed.
We will also explain the impact of preeclampsia on a woman’s future heart health.

The Milwaukee Film Festival and Froedtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin present Black Birth: A Maternal Health Conversation and Resource Fair.
The short film Black Birth serves as the backdrop to a community dialogue about the joys, fears, complexities, and disparities of Black motherhood in America and locally in Milwaukee. Following the film screening will be a panel discussion including an OB-GYN physician and resident, community doula, African American breastfeeding expert, and other maternal-fetal care specialists, as well as a resource fair featuring leading health and wellness community partners.
|11:00 AM||Welcome and Introduction|
|11:15 AM||Short Film|
|12:15 - 1:00 PM||Panel Questions and Discussion|
Join us September 25th for the Ray of Hope’s 3rd Annual Race! Help us run or walk to raise funds for ovarian cancer. All proceeds go directly to our researchers working hard to identify novel targets and treatment strategies to cure ovarian cancer.
Ray of Hope is a non-profit organization established in 2018 in the Greater Milwaukee Area in response to the need for more advocacy for ovarian cancer awareness and research. Ray of hope provides philanthropic support to ovarian cancer researchers like us to generate preliminary data to apply for high-risk and high-reward federal grants. Ray of hope believes in the bravery of all women who have fought or are fighting against ovarian cancer. Ray of hope is working for women around the globe to be brave and resilient in the fight against ovarian cancer – – and their bravery should not go unnoticed.
Sunila Pradeep, PhD’s laboratory is partnering in the mission of Ray of Hope by identifying novel targets and treatment strategies to cure ovarian cancer.

Bo Wang, PhD
Director – Tissue Regenerative Engineering Laboratory (TRE Lab)
Assistant Professor – Department of Biomedical Engineering, The Marquette University and Medical College of Wisconsin
Dr. Bo Wang, Director and Principal Investigator of the TRE Lab, received her PhD in Biomedical Engineering from Mississippi State University in 2012 and completed her Postdoctoral Fellowship at Northwestern University’s Feinberg School of Medicine, Department of Surgery, in 2016. She joined the Marquette-MCW Joint Department of Biomedical Engineering in January of 2019 with research interests that include stem cell engineering, hard-tissue engineering and 3D bioprinting, as well as vascular tissue engineering, imaging, modeling and simulation.
The Tissue Regenerative Engineering Laboratory is developing bio-functional engineered tissues that provide advanced therapeutic options for such conditions as birth defects, bone disorders, and liver and vascular diseases. To do this, the TRE Lab will first develop a greater understanding of the biological and molecular processes involved in regenerative regression.
