The Global Human Milk Research Consortium
GHMRC exists to promote excellence in breastmilk and breastfeeding research with interdisciplinary collaborations that challenge the science, push the boundaries of knowledge, and contribute meaningfully to the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
GHMRC consists of five independent research centers, based at renowned universities, and endowed by the Family Larsson-Rosenquist Foundation (LRF).
LRF Mother-Milk-Infant Center of Research Excellence at the University of California San Diego
- LRF Center for Neurodevelopment, Growth and Nutrition of the Newborn at the University of Zurich
- LRF Center for Economics of Breastfeeding at the University of Zurich
- LRF Center for Endocrinology of Human Lactation at the University of Oxford
- LRF Center for Immunology and Breastfeeding at the University of Western Australia, Perth
Beyond their individual research areas, the centers are collaborating on interdisciplinary research projects capable of bridging traditional divides between disciplines. As a cornerstone of that interdisciplinary approach, the GHMRC has launched a multi-year fellowship program to connect the different centers. The fellowship program will be announced shortly.
