Register for this webinar to learn how to implement biomarker-enabled preeclampsia risk stratification tools. With your registration, you will have access to the recording on demand through January 31, 2022.


Managing preeclampsia risk is a cornerstone of prenatal care worldwide. Yet, until recently, the tools to assess a woman’s preeclampsia risk early in pregnancy consisted merely of scoring her against a set of risk factors. Meanwhile, clinicians monitor women for the onset of preeclampsia principally based on regular blood pressure and proteinuria (dipstick) measurements. Medical professionals for decades have been highlighting the need for biomarkers which can complement, or even replace, these existing approaches. This intense interest has identified a plethora of putative biomarkers, yet so far few have found a place in clinical care.

Join Robin Tuytten, PhD, as he discusses the current state-of-the art clinical applications in preeclampsia risk prediction. He will also discuss the intrinsic challenges of developing (biomarker based) risk predictors for syndromic conditions like pre-eclampsia and how these challenges impact biomarker development efforts.

Registrants will have access to this recording on demand through the January 31, 2022.


This activity is designed for physicians, lab supervisors, lab directors (and/or assistant directors), lab managers (supervisory and/or non-supervisory), medical technologists, point-of-care coordinators, fellows, residents, and other laboratory professionals overseeing and/or carrying out biomarker testing.


At the end of this activity, participants will be able to:

  • Know the right questions to ask in order to establish a purposeful translational research pipeline
  • Become familiar with a translational research pipeline for metabolite biomarker development
  • Understand the different types of preeclampsia biomarker development projects
