Biomedical Research Unit in Reproductive Health wins Research Team Award

BRu

Our Biomedical Research Unit in Reproductive Health has won the Research Team Award at the University Awards 2017.

The Unit, led by Professor Siobhan Quenby and Professor Jan Brosens, brings together colleagues from Warwick Medical School, WMG, the Department of Computer Science and University Hospitals Coventry and Warwickshire, and offers support, advice and cutting-edge diagnostics for couples experiencing IVF failure and recurrent miscarriages.

The team were recognised at the University Awards - which celebrate outstanding contributions made by teams and individuals across campus - held in the Butterworth Hall at Warwick Arts Centre on 12 May

The nomination for the team said:

"By combining excellent clinical care and patient-centred research, the BRU team has successfully galvanised public support that drives, and funds, the development of the Tommy’s National Miscarriage Research Centre. The work of the Warwick team is internationally recognised as pioneering and has already delivered new treatment options that are currently being tested in clinical trials.

"The new Tommy’s centre now enables 24,000 women per year to access treatment and support and participate in Tommy’s research studies. Tommy’s #misCOURAGE campaign continues to grow and resonate with women, attracting a UK and global audience. To date the campaign has reached over 16 million women on Facebook with 7 million of them watching the campaign film; 7,000 taking part in a miscarriage survey and over 1,000 women bravely sharing their personal #misCOURAGE story."

Congratulations to all involved!
