Dr Priya Bhide, MD PhD FHEA FRCOG


Clinical Senior Lecturer

Centre: Centre for Public Health & Policy



I am a Clinical Senior Lecturer at the Women’s Health Research Unit, Centre for Public Health and Policy. I am the module lead for obstetrics and gynaecology for undergraduate teaching at Bart’s and the London School of Medicine and Dentistry, QMUL.

I am an experienced clinician with over 20 years of experience in reproductive medicine and assisted conception. I work as a member of the senior clinical team at the Homerton Fertility Centre, London.

I have participated in undergraduate teaching at QMUL since 2015 as a part of the lecture faculty and examiner and have taken over as module lead since 2018. I am a preceptor for all training modules of the British Fertility Society, supervise for MD and PhD at QMUL, and the Advanced Professional Module (APM) of the RCOG. I am a member of the Reproductive Medicine Clinical Studies Group (RMCSG) of the RCOG and the Cochrane Gynaecology and Subfertility group. I am a member of the international editorial board of Acta Obstetricia et Gynecologica Scandinavica. I conduct referee reviews for all major journals in my specialty.


Research Interests:

My research interests include reproductive endocrinology, PCOS, subfertility and assisted conception.

I am the primary grant holder and chief investigator on the Time-Lapse Imaging Trial (TILT). This is a multi-centre international randomised controlled trial, funded by Bart’s Charity and on the national portfolio. It aims to assess the clinical effectiveness and safety of time lapse imaging of embryos for women having IVF treatment. I am also a co-applicant on an NIHR grant for the randomised controlled trial HELP Infertility? (Hysteroscopic Excision of Leiomyoma and Polyp in Infertility).

I have experience as a principal investigator for several multi-centre, national and international RCTs leading to successful high impact publications.
