Research Areas


Research areas

We are focusing on five main areas of research to advance outcomes for the public: reproductive medicine & maternal health, gastroenterology, urology, microbiome and early stage development.

Reproductive medicine & maternal health

Increasing numbers of couples are seeking help to conceive and Ferring is committed to supporting everyone from conception to birth.


Ferring has a long heritage in supporting gastroenterology patients and a series of developmental initiatives are underway to bring new products to this community.

Urology & Uro-oncology

We are developing medicines and researching early stage treatments as part of our sustained commitment to specialty innovation.


Ferring, alongside our partners, is working to understand the human microbiome and exploring its potential to develop innovative ways to diagnose, treat and prevent disease.

Early stage development

Ferring is committed to supporting exploratory, discovery and pre-clinical research in collaboration with a broad range of organisations, world-leading academics and biotechnology companies.
