PEARLS is a non profit organization established under the auspices of the Heart Research Foundation, Royal Prince Alfred Hospital and Campbelltown Hospital to raise funds to support ongoing research into the cause of preeclampsia, to raise awareness for early detection, to upgrade equipment used in research and to develop an early screening test to be implemented widely for pregnant women.
PEARLS was established by a small group of interested patients and doctors in 2002. At that time it was not known what causes preeclampsia. This condition has been baffling scientists and doctors for over 100 years. Our critical aim at that time was to find that cause.
Since our modest beginnings in 2002 the scientists supported by PEARLS , Professor Annemarie Hennessy and her team , have been extremely successful. There have been some world leading breakthoughs in their research and Professor Hennessy and her team are regarded as leaders in the world in preeclampsia research.
PEARLS has also grown in size and reach and is now associated with the Heart Research Institute, Royal Prince Alfred Hospital and Campbelltown Hospital in Sydney and has research collaboration in place with the Mater Hospital in Sydney, Harvard University in the USA as well as hospitals in India.
PEARLS is also extremely proud to have as our Patron Her Excellency Professor Marie Bashir, Governor of New South Wales and we are extremely grateful for her ongoing support.
PEARLS laboratories are located at the Heart Research Institute in Eliza Street, Newtown and at the School of Medicine, University of Western Sydney, Campbelltown.
