What we do
The Nuffield Department of Women's & Reproductive Health encompasses multi-disciplinary research across the full spectrum of women’s health. Our work has four overarching themes; Cancer, Global Health, Maternal & Fetal Health and Reproductive Medicine & Genetics. We also teach students and provide clinical care for Oxford University Hospitals NHS Trust. The department also includes The George Institute for Global Health (TGI) whose mission is to increase access to quality health care for millions of people worldwide - with a particular focus on vulnerable women in resource-poor settings.
