The Infant Mortality and Morbidity Studies (TIMMS) is a collaborative multi-disciplinary group of researchers undertaking international, national and international research with expertise in epidemiology, statistics, neonatology, psychology, sociology and database application development.

Our aims are 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 in order to influence policy, education and clinical practice in reproductive, perinatal and paediatric medicine.
