Menzies seminar series 


Professor Caroline Crowther and Philippa Middleton present ‘Research networks through the WOMBAT collaboration and the SEA-ORCHID project’, on Wednesday 5 December from 3pm to 4pm.

Philippa Middleton coordinates two key projects for the Australian Research Centre for Health and Wellbeing of Women and Babies (ARCH), based at the University of Adelaide, known as the WOMBAT collaboration and the SEA-ORCHID project.

The projects are centered on developing and sustaining research collaborations and networks in the perinatal field. Specifically, the WOMBAT collaboration aims to promote and support high quality randomised clinical trials in the perinatal area. The SEA-ORCHID project (South East Asia - Optimising Reproductive and Child Health in Developing Countries) is an initiative to build evidence-based capacity for reproductive and child health in South East Asia.

Caroline Crowther is Professor of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, and Director of the ARCH. Her research interests are in evidenced-based care in maternal fetal medicine and include maternal and perinatal mortality, the management and treatment of hypertensive disease in pregnancy, multiple-pregnancy, prenatal diagnosis care around preterm birth and evaluation of effective pregnancy care by randomised controlled trials.

This seminar takes place in Seminar Room, Menzies School of Health Research, Building 58, Royal Darwin Hospital Campus.
