Harris Programme Grant

Wellbeing of Women awards a £1m ‘Harris Research Grant’ to University of Liverpool and Liverpool Women’s Hospital for vital research into premature birth.

Wellbeing of Women today announced it has chosen University of Liverpool and Liverpool Women’s Hospital as the recipient of a £1 million grant to pioneer vital research into premature birth.

This exciting development is made possible through the personal generosity of Lord and Lady Harris of Peckham who have supported the women’s health charity for 30 years.

Their hugely-inspiring donation will be made available over the next five years and will enable the opening of a new Harris/Wellbeing of Women Centre for Pre Term Birth Research at Liverpool Women’s Hospital.

We invite applications for projects in basic science, clinical or translational research in the areas of Pregnancy and Childbirth, including pre-term birth, miscarriage and fertility, Quality of Life issues such as menopause, incontinence and prolapse, sexual health, menstrual disorders and endometriosis and Gynaecological Cancers.

This year we have two special calls: one for research into the menopause and one for research into amniotic fluid embolism. We have dedicated funding which will only be spent in these two areas.

This does not impact on our general grant call, which is open as normal.  Full details of how to apply can be found here.
