The lives of premature babies and their mothers are being changed by our groundbreaking work at the Jennifer Brown Research Laboratory. The lab’s mission is to find out why babies are born prematurely and come up with better ways to care for them.
Our flagship research project is The Theirworld Edinburgh Birth Cohort: a unique 25-year study to learn more about how being born too soon or too small affects people’s health in later life, by monitoring the progress of 400 premature babies over 25 years.
The laboratory celebrates 15 years of helping to save premature babies.
