Welcome to our first Virtual Volunteer Conference .

Every year we invite three Wellbeing of Women researchers to present on their projects, each from a different area of our work.

This year, we are delighted to introduce:

• Professor Nikki Robertson, University College London, Research Grant

Professor Robertson will talk about her research into the use of melatonin to help prevent baby brain damage as a result of infection and asphyxiation at birth.

• Dr Varsha Jain, University of Edinburgh, Research Fellow

Dr Jain will present her work on Abnormal Uterine Bleeding (AUB) that affects up to 25% of women and girls.

• Dr Sarah Kitson, University of Manchester, Research Training Fellow

Dr Kitson will present her work to create a model to predict a woman’s risk of womb cancer and subsequent interventions that could help women lower their risk.
