Our research

At King’s Fertility, we believe that being a leader in research enables us to provide the best possible clinical outcomes for all our patients.

One of the frustrating things about fertility is that there is a lot of innovation in the sector, but little evidence. The pace of innovation from ‘benchtop to bedside’ races ahead at an unprecedented speed compared to other areas of medicine. As exciting as this might sound, it comes with its own pitfalls… potentially expensive and ineffective treatments. As a clinic we know that the only way to treat our patients better is to find answers to the questions that remain unanswered.

It’s well documented that research active medical centres have better outcomes for patients than those that do not engage in research. Not all of our patients will personally benefit from the results of our ongoing programmes, which are implemented by Research Fellows under the umbrella of King’s College London. However all of them benefit from being treated in an environment that prides itself on being at the forefront of science and evidence based medicine. We call it ‘thinking IVF’ – and the benefits to all our patients are obvious.
Profits generated from our clinical work are routed to the Fetal Medicine Foundation (FMF), the charity that owns us. These funds are reinvested into research and training. As an academic unit, we owe it to our patients to try and find the answers. We believe in an evidence based approach to fertility, so where there is a lack of evidence, we dedicate ourselves to the necessary research. This may be difficult and, in many cases, it will take a lot of time. But this is work that we commit to, on behalf of our patients.

The funding provided by the FMF allows us to conduct new, innovative research projects under the umbrella of King’s College London. In doing so we contribute to advancing the fields of fetal medicine and fertility. We are the only fertility clinic in the UK (and one of the only ones in the world) to treat people and conduct research on a continuous spectrum.

Our experienced teams are committed to combining innovative, evidence based approaches with the very latest technologies in our welcoming, state of the art facilities.
