  Main resume

Consultant clinical embryologist with over 28 years experience in human assisted reproductive technologies and research. I am an established scientific director/consultant embryologist. I am currently working in the UK as a consultant locum embryologist. I consult worldwide to diverse juristictions and provide expert advice to professional bodies. I have designed and established IVF units from the 'ground-up' and performed duties as an off site scientific director in such places as the former Russian states, Eastern Europe, The Middle East, Pakistan and India. I am a HFEA licensed ICSI practitioner and pioneered blastocyst and embryo biopsy techniques in the early 90's. I can perform all procedures of a modern IVF unit and I am particularly proud of my ICSI success rates. I have used most of the commercially available media suites (even developing the early sequential media as well as consulting on media performance), differing culture conditions (e.g. Embryoscope) and micromanipulation platforms to perform embryological duties and my experience allows me to adapt and ‘fit-in’ quickly to new environments and assist with training of junior staff (if required). I have developed a customisable training program based upon my worldwide experience which allows for accelerated progress depending on individual aptitude(s). If you find yourself in need of a locum, please consider me carefully. I am able to travel at short notice if required to anywhere in the world being close to Heathrow and Gatwick and M25 closer to home. I can assist in implementation of quality management systems or laboratory/unit design having established IVF units from conception to fully functional. I am happy to consult from a distance if you require input on any matter embryological! I can advise on purchase of capital equipment as I have good working relationships with many of the key suppliers to IVF units (esp. in UK and Europe) and having established IVF Units, can provide 'real-world' advice on best investment for productivity. Unbiased and impartial advice on clinic performance for better productivity based around a proven quality management scheme and advanced training for laboratory staff on a one-to-one basis.

 I am located in the UK but available by email/online for consultation and travel worldwide. Available for short term advisory contracts to enable unit start-up or troubleshooting if results are below expectations! Available for locum cover with immediate effect worldwide from UK base. Personal consultations available to discuss ongoing treatment or concerns from an unbiased perspective.
