Professor Adrian Maxwell Grant FRSE, FMedSci
Adrian Grant began his career as an epidemiologist in the National Perinatal Epidemiology Unit in Oxford where he established the most productive perinatal trials research group in the world, the Perinatal Trials Service, and was awarded a Doctorate.

During the 1980s, Adrian was a pioneer of randomised trials and he was a principal contributor to a 1500-page book compiling reviews – Effective Care in Pregnancy and Childbirth. He created an electronic publication – The Oxford Database of Perinatal Trials – so that reviews could be updated as new evidence became available or mistakes identified and it was this pilot that led on to the international Cochrane Collaboration.
