The authorized biography of IVF pioneer Robert Edwards is a compelling account of how he led a medical and social revolution by making babies in ‘test-tubes’. Prevailing against immense opposition when human embryology was new and sacrosanct territory, he was the champion of people with infertility, and now millions more owe their existence to assisted reproductive technologies.
The author, Roger Gosden, pledged the profits from royalties to the Edwards & Steptoe Research Trust and RESOLVE USA. There will be an official book launch at the Cambridge Science Festival.
The book has been endorsed by Zev Rosenwaks, Alan Trounson, Louise Brown and other prominent names. It is written for anyone interested in a biomedical revolution.
The chances of having a treatment-independent live birth following IVF or ICSI are favourable, say researchers at the University of Aberdeen.

AI made its debut into the research world of assisted reproductive technologies (ART) in the late 1990s, through the creation of an algorithm aimed at predicting the outcome of IVF. More AI technologies using different kinds of algorithms followed and were used in various ways, including sperm cell classification and oocyte and embryo selection.
A study reveals that a molecular handshake may exist between cells of the uterus and sperm that may help sperm evade attack by the female immune response.
The Royal Oldham Hospital is commissioning a new plaque to honour Jean Purdy and Sister Muriel Harris who played a pivotal role in the world's first IVF baby. This comes almost a month after Oldham councillor Zahid Chauhan called for hospital chiefs and the council to formally acknowledge Purdy's contributions.
The programme will provide embryologists with a comprehensive knowledge and understanding of embryo biopsy. As well as lectures, the course will include hands on practicals and demonstrations of cleavage stage and blastocyst biopsy. During the two days, delegates will not become competent at these techniques but will have enough hands on to go away and practice in their own laboratory setting. The workshop will also allow scientists to discuss the technology with their peers and with experts in the field. Delegates will be given copies of the powerpoint presentations.
