Research in the MRC Centre for Reproductive Health (MRC-CRH) is broadly organised into three themes co-led by an academic based in MRC-CRH and a scientist based in a complementary Centre within the Little France campus, emphasising the collaborative nature of research within MRC-CRH. Several projects span themes.
The Centre Director and the Executive committee set the strategy and provide leadership within MRC-CRH so as to maintain the focus, quality and momentum of the scientific research, improve the translation of findings for patient benefit and economic gain. The Centre aims to provide an unrivaled environment for training and one that ensures effective outreach and knowledge exchange.
