Cambridge Reproduction



The Cambridge Lactation Network was launched in November 2021 with the first event bringing together interested lactation researchers from several Departments and Institutions across Cambridge. The purpose of the network is to help foster collaboration and resource sharing, where together we hope to untangle the role lactation and human milk has in health, disease, development and beyond. The network is welcome to all members of the research community interested in lactation biology. Together we hope to build a thriving milk-centred society.


The network hosts quarterly meeting with a longer symposium held in summer. The next meeting will be our summer symposium hosted in person between 14:00-17:00 on 23 June 2022 - see here for more information:


To register your interest for the network or to attend our meetings, please contact the network organisers: Dr Alecia-Jane Twigger (, Dr Claire Meek ( or Dr Albert Koulman (
