High blood sugar levels during pregnancy can lead to abnormalities in the offspring, particularly in the cardiovascular and neural systems. Jing Zhao looked for causal mechanisms for these congenital abnormalities by establishing the gene expression profile using Next Generation Sequencing methods. The underlying mechanisms behind Crohn's disease were also explored.
