Welcome to the Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology which is located on the Cambridge Biomedical Campus. We are part of the University of Cambridge School of Clinical Medicine and have staff located at The Rosie Hospital and Addenbrookes Hospital. The Department is comprised of a very talented and multidisciplinary team of researchers, technicians and clinicians. Our Head of Department is Professor Gordon Smith and our Principal Investigators are Professor Steve Charnock-Jones, Dr Francesco Colucci, Dr Miguel Constancia and Dr Catherine Aiken.
