The PMRU is a collaboration between Alder Hey Children’s NHS Foundation Trust, Liverpool Women’s NHS Foundation Trust, Edge Hill University, Liverpool John Moore’s University, the University of Central Lancashire and the University of Liverpool. It is also supported by industry, clinical experts and children and young people, both nationally and internationally.
