Endometriosis CaRe Oxford is a nationally and internationally acclaimed centre of expertise in clinical care and research into Endometriosis. The Centre is part of the Nuffield Department of Women’s & Reproductive Health (NDWRH) of the University of Oxford.

Our Mission is twofold:

to provide evidence-based, patient-focussed care of the highest quality


to conduct groundbreaking clinical and basic scientific research for the advancement of the understanding, diagnosis and treatment of all forms of endometriosis.

Endometriosis results in severe pelvic pain and reduced fertility for millions of women worldwide. The symptoms of Endometriosis include painful periods, painful ovulation, pain during or after sex, abnormal bleeding, chronic pelvic pain, fatigue, and infertility, and it can also impact on general physical, mental and social well-being.

Our research in the Oxford Endometriosis CaRe Centre seeks to identify what causes endometriosis to help improve our understanding of its different forms and with our integrated endometriosis research programme we hope to be able to re-classify the disease using a combination of biological and clinical parameters, to discover new, non-invasive biomarkers and to identify novel targets for more individualised treatments.
