Congratulations to scientist Professor Robert Edwards who was recently knighted for his fertility research and his development of IVF! Just eight months ago Sir Edwards was awarded the Nobel Prize for medicine for his work. A pioneer in his field, Sir Edwards, along with gynaecologist Patrick Steptoe, changed the lives those struggling with infertility when Louise Brown was born through IVF on July 25 1978. Sir Edwards is now 85 years old and is a professor of human reproduction at Cambridge University.

Global IVF wants to honor Sir Edwards–his research has helped millions of families grow, all over the world!
