Support the Jennifer Brown Research Laboratory

Every year, 15 million children are born pre-term (before 37 weeks) and it is still the biggest cause of death and disability among newborn babies.

The Jennifer Brown Research Laboratory was set up at the University of Edinburgh as a pioneering project of Theirworld in 2004. It works to better identify women at risk of premature birth, explore how we can develop treatments to prevent early labour and research how we can better help newborn babies in those first crucial hours and days after birth.
