  • Mission statement

    To increase research on all aspects of reproductive health, including stillbirth, miscarriage, infertility and premature birth and to improve care of these devastating conditions.

    We fund research which will make the biggest difference to ordinary people. They want to become parents of a healthy child. And we have a proud history of translating our research to improve family health, including cancer smear tests, stem cells, uterine cancer, prevention of genetic disease and IVF.

    Having already transformed the lives of many parents-to-be we know that not only is there the potential to achieve far more, there is also an urgent need to do so.

    We are based at Imperial College London, world renowned for outstanding scientific research. Our department is led by Professor Phil Bennett, internationally recognised for his research into prematurity. We select and train the most talented young scientists who will initiate advances across the globe.
