This page provides information about the the Preterm Birth Clinical Study Group.

The Preterm Birth CSG develops clinical and basic science research studies to prevent or treat preterm birth. We are interested in any intervention applied before delivery. Our multidisciplinary executive groups helps researchers to optimise study design prior to submission for research funding and encourages collaboration between research teams. The CSG also welcomes suggestions for research priorities which may be relayed to funders.

Research proposals

Please contact us if you have a study you would like to discuss or which requires support from the CSG by a funding body, or if you have a suggestion for a research priority for funders. To submit a proposal for consideration, please complete the project proforma and email it to Professor Mark Johnson well in advance of any submission for funding.
