Why is this important?

The Irish Centre for Fetal and Neonatal Translational Research (INFANT) is Ireland’s first dedicated perinatal research Centre. INFANT works to improve health outcomes for mothers and babies by focusing on clinical and health research and innovation in pregnancy, birth and early childhood. This is the only research Centre in Ireland focused on this work. Research focused on mothers and children must be prioritized.

Reasons for signing

  • INFANT is a unique and important centre for perinatal research and requires funding for core staff who are the infrastructure of the centre to maintain its operational effectiveness.
  • Such important research, funding pivotal to continue to accommodate the high level the groundbreaking work which is going on in INFANT Centre.
  • Shocking that such a well recognised research program has had its funding cut. Research into improving the health of mothers and babies is vital and needs to be supported in every way possible.
