Centre for Mother, Infant, & Child Research

Centre for Mother, Infant, and Child Research (CMICR)

The Centre for Mother, Infant, and Child Research (CMICR) was established to improve the health of women and their infants and children through clinical research and education.

CMICR's strength lies in the coordination of multicentre, national and international randomized controlled trials. These trials are designed to answer important questions about the care of childbearing women and their infants and children. We design and conduct research, and disseminate these findings to improve the practice of health care professionals worldwide. Our research projects reflect our philosophy of evaluating approaches to health promotion, treatment and the translation of research evidence into practice. Our work, led by interdisciplinary teams of researchers, focuses on medical/physical and emotional/social outcomes.
