Other Centre partnerships
Our close partners helping to develop innovative research into reproductive health.
Child Life and Health
Child Life and Health (CLAH) was established in 1931. The Department was initially in Chalmers Street adjacent to the old Royal Infirmary and the Simpson Memorial Maternity Pavilion. CLAH moved into its first purpose-built accommodation when the new Wing of the Royal Hospital for Sick Children was completed in August 1994.
The Edinburgh Reproductive Tissue Bio Bank
The procurement and subsequent use of human tissue samples is the cornerstone of medical research that has facilitated countless medical discoveries and advances in therapy.
The Edinburgh Reproductive Tissue Bio Bank (ERTBB) has been set up to aid medical and scientific researchers working in the field of reproductive biology, with the long term goal of improving the health, diagnosis and treatment of women and their un-born infants.
The Bank provides high quality tissue samples and matched medical data in an anonymised form for researchers working on projects which have already obtained ethical approval from an appropriate ethics committee.
The Shared University Research Facilities
The Shared University Research Facilities (SuRF) at the University of Edinburgh offer a comprehensive range of services to underpin and support research within the QMRI, SCRM, University, NHS and wider research community.
The Scottish HPV Investigators Network
A group of interested scientists, clinicians and administrators came together to form the Scottish HPV Investigators Network (SHINe). The purpose of SHINe is to act as:
- A multi-disciplinary forum for discussion on HPV and HPV-related diseases
- Identify emerging research and clinical questions and
- Implement a series of research programmes/projects relevant to HPV disease prevention and management in the future.
