“Globally, prematurity accounts for 1 million new-born deaths every year. Currently, no one knows how to stop it. Only research will give us the answers we need in order to find effective preventions for preterm birth. From the moment a Borne scientist has a new idea, it takes over 3000 hours to carry out lab research before we get to clinical trials. It’s a long and expensive journey to find a cure for preterm birth, and it will help millions of mothers and babies worldwide. You can help us."

- Professor Mark Johnson, Founder and Chief Scientific Officer.
