Improving diagnosis and treatment of endometriosis

Project Details

Our research team aims to improve the quality of life for all people living with endometriosis and associated Persistent Pelvic Pain (PPP) through research-driven improvements to diagnosis and treatment.

Our nine coordinated projects focus on 3 major themes:  
1. Better diagnosis of initial and recurrent endometriosis
2. Improved patient outcomes for endometriosis associated pain
3. Development of an evidence-based pathway to treat endometriosis-related infertility.

The 3 themes contain a powerful mixture of clinical trials and lab-based research that will lead to improved outcomes in conjunction with a better understanding of factors that lead to the development and progression of endometriosis.
