Cambridge Reproduction


One of the primary goals of this SRI is to foster integration across disciplines and strengthen ties between researchers at Cambridge.

Over the past decade Cambridge University has become home to an increasing number of leading research centres and groupings in ‘reproductive studies’, such as the Centre for Family Research, the Centre for Trophoblast Research (CTR), the Cambridge Group for the History of Population and Social Structure (CAMPOP), and the Growth and Development Programme of the MRC Epidemiology Unit, as well as newer groups such as the Wellcome-funded Generation to Reproduction project and the Reproductive Sociology Research Group (ReproSoc) based in Sociology.

On the clinical side, there is the on-going and highly successful Pregnancy Outcome Prediction Study (POPS) being conducted in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, and women’s health is one of the three themes of the Wellcome Trust-Cambridge Centre for Global Health Research.

These groupings have arisen to meet the needs of researchers in their respective fields, forging cross-disciplinary projects and partnerships across the University.
