The Infant Mortality & Morbidity Studies
The Infant Mortality & Morbidity Studies are a collaborative group of national and regional research projects.
The aim of this group of studies is to investigate the causes, consequences, and management of morbidity and mortality of the fetus, infant, and child related to pregnancy, delivery, infancy and childhood in defined populations.
All the TIMMS studies require research collaborations with local, regional and national clinicians in specialties including: obstetrics, neonatal medicine, paediatrics, pathology, toxicology and genetics, and the Regional, Strategic Health Authority & PCT Directors of Public Health.
