Women's Health

Women’s Health research examines common health issues that affect the health and wellbeing of women and aims to optimise health and wellbeing. Our research utilizes a wide range of basic, clinical and epidemiological approaches in obstetrics and gynaecology to further understand a variety of common conditions including complications of pregnancy, reproductive health (particularly heavy menstrual bleeding, endometriosis, menopause and women’s cancers) and is multidisciplinary in scope
