Baroness Mary Warnock, a pioneer of embryology research ethics and a patron of the Progress Educational Trust (PET), has died at the age of 94.
It is November 2015, and the woman described by the Daily Mail as having 'a monstrous ego that has destroyed so much of our moral and social heritage', is sitting, small and twinkly-eyed, on the sofa in her south London home, with Sarah Norcross (PET director), Kirsty Horsey (PET adviser) and myself.
A group of women is bringing the UK's first legal challenge to the ten-year limit on preserving frozen eggs. The women had their eggs frozen nearly ten years ago and wish to continue to preserve them in order to start a family in the future. Lawyers representing the group have advised that the ten-year limit may breach their human right to a private and family life.
The average birth weight of babies conceived by IVF has increased by approximately 180 grams over a 25-year period, a UK study suggests.
A survey by the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RCOG) has found that 44 percent of women aged 18-24 would consider freezing their eggs in the future.
A group of international experts is calling for a moratorium on the clinical use of germline genome editing in humans. Led by Professor Eric Lander, director of the Broad Institute of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Harvard, 17 scientists and ethicists from seven countries made the call in the journal Nature.
The Certificate in Clinical Embryology is a discipline-specific program for those who have long-term goals in clinical and research Embryology. The certificate is intended to strenghten the existing experience of health care professionals. The advantage of this program is that it provides additional education while not requiring as much time away from duties of patient care; This means you can complete the program at the comfort of your home and acquire same experience and knowledge to advance your practice
The certificate program is designed to meet the Core Competencies for Health Care Embryology Consultation developed by the AAB Board of Registry; a leading certifying board for Embryology Laboratory Scientists, Andrology Laboratory Scientists, Molecular Diagnostics Technologists The training will develop knowledge, skills and competence in clinical and research Embryology through reading assignments, didactic class discussion, diverse educational seminars, clinical observation, research training and participation, written assignments, a project

Royan International Twin Congress on Reproductive Biomedicine and Stem Cells Biology & Technology is a unique event in its own field in Iran and the Middle East. The congress is a joint of two separate congresses with different themes held by the Reproductive Biomedicine and Stem Cells Research Center, Royan Institute.
The rapid growing pace of scientific advancement and dissemination of the latest scientific findings in recent years necessitates the development of collaboration among Iranian scientists and their colleagues from around the globe to exchange the scientific knowledge, expertise and experience. In this regard, Royan International Twin Congress provides a favorable opportunity to achieve scientific purposes and promote the scope of international cooperation.
Royan International Research Award (RIRA) is an annual prize, established in 1999, geared toward researchers in reproductive biomedicine, stem cell biology and technology sciences and regenerative medicine. The prize is awarded for outstanding basic or clinical research in related fields performed by the applicant.
