CARE Fertility has generously donated £202,800 to fund two Doctors of Philosophy (PhDs) to support the work of Professor Arri Coomarasamy (Director of the Tommy's National Centre for Miscarriage Research and Founding Director of the WHO Collaborating Centre for Global Women’s Health) and team at the University of Birmingham.

The funding will support the development of the next generation of researchers in infertility and assisted conception. The donation is expected to cement a collaboration between the two organisations to pursue outstanding research to answer priority research questions in infertility.

David Burford, CEO of CARE Fertility, says: "CARE has a long history of innovation and support for research and development. The collaboration with the University of Birmingham is an example of our commitment to the IVF sector and our desire for quality. We hope this is the start of a long relationship with both the University and the doctors."

Professor Arri Coomarasamy at the University of Birmingham says: "The research funds will support the development of two medical doctors who will acquire advanced research knowledge and skills that they can then put to use throughout their entire professional lives to solve problems that matter to patients. It is very unusual for private clinics to make such a substantial donation, particularly in the current climate. We are grateful to CARE for this investment, and we hope this is the beginning of a meaningful partnership."
