Endometriosis: Into The Unknown
4 Nov 2023 - 3 Mar 2024
190 million people in the world have endometriosis. So why do we know so little about it?
Endometriosis is a common condition where cells similar to the lining of the uterus are found in other parts of the body outside of the uterus. It causes life-changing symptoms including chronic pain and fertility difficulties. Awareness of endometriosis is low, even among healthcare providers.
Endometriosis: Into the Unknown takes you on a journey from the basics of endometriosis to the cutting edge of research, exploring myths and the reality of living with the condition along the way. Discover what we know about endometriosis, and how much there is still left to learn.
This exhibition is produced in collaboration with Oxford EndoCare, part of the Nuffield Department of Women's and Reproductive Health, and the Wellcome Centre for Human Genetics based at The University of Oxford.
