Researchers aim to block inherited disease at the genetic level

By Cai Wenjun


Dr Huang Hefeng, president of Shanghai International Peace Maternity and Child Health Hospital, receives a prize for her research on congenital and developmental disease prevention and control.

Local experts are conducting groundbreaking research on the mechanisms of developmental and genetically inherited diseases.


Studies by experts from Shanghai International Peace Maternity and Child Health Hospital won first prize at the recent Shanghai Science and Technology Awards.

In addition to such inborn deformities, tardive deformities — which include tumors, cardiovascular and metabolic diseases like hypertension and diabetes in adulthood — are also considered developmental diseases.
