Research Interests

Placental pathology, fetal pathology, stillbirth


Dr. Jacques interests focus on placental pathology, fetal pathology, and gynecologic pathology. Her research is primarily in placental pathology, including viral and bacterial infections, abnormalities of membrane rupture, and placental vascular abnormalities. Her interests also include fetal congenital anomalies and genetic disorders, with emphasis on diagnosis in the second trimester of pregnancy and correlation with the ultrasound findings. Her research in the area of stillbirth has focused on fetal neuropathological abnormalities and associated placental abnormalities.
