Research & Science
We actively participate in IVF research to drive fertility science forward and improve results.
Our vision of a science-led and patient-focused fertility group defines the approach of our dedicated teams of scientists, researchers and specialists.
IVF research and science
Care have been at the forefront of fertility and IVF research for decades. Many of our team members have worked in the field since the 70s and 80s and are behind a number of global and national firsts. By continuing this legacy we hope to make more discoveries and advances that can help us to improve the chance of success for everyone who needs our help.
Care leads in training of specialist staff. We have been responsible for the highest proportion of graduates from the scientist training program (STP), outside of the NHS, for several years. We have a dedicated training suite within our Manchester clinic - a state of the art facility for training and educating in IVF technologies.
We have established a Masters degree in clinical embryology in collaboration with Liverpool John Moore's University.
We work with scientists around the world on research programmes licensed by the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority, striving together to find new solutions and treatments that could help our patients in the future.
Our team collaborates with renowned organisations including amongst others - the Universities of Cambridge, Chicago, John Moore's, Monash & Sheffield to look into new routes and procedures that could make our treatments even better.
Our scientists also make regular contributions to the research field. They speak at and attend lectures, workshops and conferences around the world. This effort not only supports the development of our teams but also the profession, and many of our scientists have published papers and books on their work – some of which have even won them awards
