The Obstetrics & Gynaecology group, part of the Division of Applied Health Sciences, has been at the forefront of research and development in human reproduction since the 1960's, when Sir Dugald Baird established a worldwide reputation for his work on obstetrics, physiology and epidemiology. Since then the group has made many important contributions to the science and practice of obstetrics and gynaecology. In recent years the emphasis has been on infertility, obstetric epidemiology (including maternal mortality and morbidity), and the prevention of cancer in women. The commitment to high quality research has led to the establishment of two clinical research units within the group, namely the Dugald Baird Centre and the Aberdeen Fertility Centre. The research programme involves extensive collaboration with other sections in the School of Medicine & Dentistry, other institutions in Aberdeen and in addition international collaborative links with centres in Europe, the US and Australia and the developing world. Obstetrics & Gynaecology as part of the Division of Applied Health Sciences was highly rated in the most recent Research Assessment Exercise.
