Pregnancy researchers named among nation’s lifesavers

Researchers from UHCW have been recognised for their exceptional contribution to keeping the nation healthy.

Professor Siobhan Quenby and Professor Jan Brosens (pictured below) are named in the top 100 individuals or groups based in universities whose work is saving lives and making a life-changing difference to our health and wellbeing.

They have been heralded as part of Universities UK’s MadeAtUni campaign, which brings to life the impact of universities on every day lives.

Research by Professor Quenby and Professor Brosens, who work on behalf of UHCW and Warwick University, has helped to develop a better understanding of the causes of recurrent miscarriage and led to tests to identify women at risk of further pregnancy loss.

Professor Quenby said: “It is a fantastic honour to feature as one of the Nation’s Lifesavers for our work to better understand the causes of miscarriage, especially in repeat pregnancy loss.”

Professor Brosens added: “We’re grateful for the support we have received from Tommy’s, the baby charity. The MadeAtUni campaign is a great chance to celebrate the many ways our research is having a significant impact on our everyday lives.”

The Nation’s Lifesavers are fighting diseases, helping new parents and children enjoy the best start in life, supporting older people and improving our mental health and wellbeing.

The selection reveals the amazing use of technology, such as drones to fight malaria, a smart glove for communicating sign language and robots helping older people.
