New Facility

We are looking forward to the move in the very near future to the new "Baird Family Hospital". The Baird Family Hospital will replace the current Aberdeen Maternity Hospital on Foresterhill Campus and will encompass all women’s health services including maternity health services, gynaecology services, breast screening and breast surgery.

This new "Baird Family Hospital" will be named in recognition of the contribution made to women's health by Professor Dugald Baird and the Baird family in the North East of Scotland and across the world.

Crucially, within the Baird Family Hospital there will be facilities dedicated to the Aberdeen centre for Women's Health Research, allowing us to bring together a multi-disciplinary team to generate the answers to important questions in women's health and to evaluate impact and implementation into personalised clinical care.

New Staff

(Join us! )

To expand our scope and collaborations, we are attracting world class academic clinicians to come to new key posts within the Centre, each with a research team to support their programme of ground breaking work.  This will include an expansion in the number of research students; we are currently accepting postgraduate students for PhD’s, MRes and MSc's and we would be delighted if you would get in touch with your research proposals, queries or for general exploration of training opportunities within the Centre. Please get in touch with us via acwhr@abdn.ac.uk or kelly.gray@abdn.ac.uk.

New Research

We aim to produce novel ways of desigining cllinical trials, predictive modelling, diagnostics, evidence synthesis and decision support tools as well as the next generation of observational studies.  Our world class Research Centre will continue to address women's clinical needs at different stages of their lives, and identify the best ways to deliver effective and personalised care. 

A unique feature for the Aberdeen Centre for Women's Health Research is our focus on population-based research with direct impact on clinical care - keeping women at the heart of the research.  This is in contrast to many other centres for reproductive health in the UK which focus on laboratory science.
