Meet Raj Shree, M.D., Maternity Care Provider | UW Medicine


RAJ SHREE: I work looking
at some unique pregnancy phenomenons, specifically
looking at exchange of material between the fetus and the mother
during pregnancy and delivery. And then also looking at how the
maternal immune system adapts to pregnancy and how it changes. We know that there are
cells that exchange between the mother and
the fetus during pregnancy that starts very early on,
continues throughout pregnancy, and also happens at
the time of delivery. And then trying
to understand what obstetrical factors
may influence that. And then what later life
health implications that may have for both the
mother and their offspring. There’s something about
biology and human experiences with medicine and
health and development that were always super
fascinating to me from the beginning. We are super lucky to have a
really unique breadth and depth of complexity here that is
hard to find other places. And the resilience
of the patients. Our patients go through so much
and it’s really quite striking to see and to witness and a
privilege to be a part of.
