The National Endometriosis Clinical and Scientific Trials (NECST) Network

Research lab

The National Endometriosis Clinical and Scientific Trials (NECST) Network is a collaborative group of clinicians, scientists, endometriosis patients and consumer advocates who have come together to coordinate support for research organisations and conduct clinical trials for endometriosis treatments and services.

The NECST Network - an Australian Government initiative.

Our purpose

Endometriosis is a chronic – and often debilitating – condition affecting one in nine women and girls of reproductive age in Australia. The NECST Network was established to help build, advance and promote a national research program into endometriosis and endometriosis-related symptoms – consistent with the research objectives outlined in the National Action Plan for Endometriosis (NAPE).

About us

The Australian Government is investing in health and medical research to support emerging priorities and fill gaps in research efforts through the Medical Research Future Fund (MRFF) – Accelerated Research Investment.


The NECST Network membership is open to anyone working in the field of endometriosis care or endometriosis research in a professional capacity.

The NECST Registry

The NECST Registry aims to build a complete picture of how endometriosis affects people’s lives. To do this the NECST Registry collects information over time from people living with endometriosis, endometriosis-like symptoms or endometriosis-related conditions (like adenomyosis).
