Women and children
Manchester aims to be a leading centre in the UK, and internationally, for the promotion of the health and well-being of women and children. We focus on reproductive medicine, gynaecology, pregnancy, child health and genetic medicine to transform the diagnosis and management of both common and rare diseases.
The Women and Children Domain collaborates closely with The University of Manchester’s Evolution, systems and genomics and Cellular and developmental systems strategic research domains to ensure that scientific discoveries can be channelled towards clinical practice. These collaborations focus on the understanding of gene and genome function and the processes that are fundamental to our understanding of life, such as basic cell and developmental biology processes.
