Abstract

The main goal of this research project is to build a computational model that illustrates the main processes in renal function during pregnancy. The analysis of how pregnancy affects all the factors that take place within the kidney will allow for a better understanding of how pathologies like proteinuria, hypertension, and glomerular endotheliosis develop. This model is a small part of a more complex model that showcases the complete pathophysiology of preeclampsia.
