EGA Institute for Women's Health



We aim to make a difference to the health of women, babies and their families in the UK and internationally through our research.

We have four research departments, and a commitment to global health runs through all our research.

Reproductive Health

We host a multidisciplinary team of clinicians and scientists, with expertise in a wide range of disorders affecting women’s reproductive health.

Maternal & Fetal Medicine

Our unifying aim is to improve outcomes for pregnant women and their babies through improved diagnosis and treatment.


For the past 40 years UCH and UCL have been in the forefront of neonatal research.

Women's Cancer

Our mission is to conduct multidisciplinary research into women specific cancers, to create clinical interventions and to extend our knowledge, so that fewer women receive a cancer diagnosis and that treatment and quality of life are improved for those who do.

Global Health

We have a cross-cutting strategy to strengthen and develop research and education programmes to benefit health care professionals and the women, mothers and new-borns they care for around the globe. 

Centre for Ethics

The EGA Centre for Ethics of Women’s Health encourages rigorous research and supports world-class training in ethical issues in women’s health.
