Visits and Placements


Visiting the Centre for Reproduction Research

The CRR welcomes visits from other researchers for stays of a few weeks to several months. We are happy to consider applications from researchers, including doctoral students, working in our key research areas.

A research visit to the centre offers a great opportunity to develop interests and exchange ideas, as well as to extend your network as part of a dynamic, interdisciplinary research group focused on cutting-edge topics. Visitors who wish to spend time with the group are asked to commit time in residence and to attend regular events and seminars organised by our members.

If you are interested, please contact the centre on, with your academic CV, a short outline of your research interests and your reasons for wanting to visit the centre at DMU.
