From conception to birth: celebrating a decade of the Centre for Trophoblast Research

last modified Jul 11, 2017 12:37 PM
The Centre for Trophoblast Research, ten years old today, is helping transform our understanding of the earliest stages of our lives — and in particular, the role of the placenta and interactions between the mother and her unborn child.

Established at the University of Cambridge in 2007 through an endowment from an anonymous alumnus, the Centre for Trophoblast Research has been at the forefront of research aiming to alleviate suffering resulting from complications of pregnancy, such as miscarriage, growth restriction and stillbirth. These conditions remain a major cause of maternal and infant illness and death worldwide.
