The Centre for Reproductive Medicine (CRM) is an NHS-based infertility treatment centre offering a comprehensive range of treatments to both NHS and self-funding patients. Based at University Hospital, Coventry, on the same site as the University of Warwick's Clinical Sciences Research Laboratories, it has a close working relationship with the Reproductive Health research group. Staff at CRM have undertaken research degrees, and researchers have gained clinical experience, resulting in a synergistic relationship that has many positive outcomes, in particular for translational research and maintaining a research-led clinical service.
Patients at the CRM regularly rate research as a priority activity for the unit. We enjoy considerable support from the local research awareness of staff who request consent for participation in research and patients who willingly agree to participate in trials or donate biological material.
