Professor of Reproductive Medicine, University of Edinburgh.

Professor Hilary Critchley has held a Personal Chair in Reproductive Medicine at the University of Edinburgh since 1999. Her research focuses on improving the understanding of the complex basic science of the uterine endometrium and thus the clinical management of gynaecological complaints with major impacts on women’s quality of life, notably heavy menstrual bleeding, fibroids and fertility control. Hilary is committed to seeing research in women’s health maintain a critical mass, so it achieves a prominent position in the national/global health funding arena.
