IVF AT 40: LOUISE BROWN AND ROGER GOSDEN IN CONVERSATION

| , , | Max Participants: 49 | Age Range: 16-100

Club Description

Days: 25th July

Times: 7pm

At our July 2018 Lates we celebrated a very special event—the 40th birthday of IVF and Louise Brown, the first IVF baby.

We were honoured that Louise Brown, the first person to be born through IVF, celebrated her 40th birthday at the Science Museum. She was joined by Roger Gosden, a former doctoral student of IVF pioneer Robert Edwards and expert in female infertility, for a one-off in-conversation event in our IMAX Theatre, chaired by Science Museum Director of External Affairs, Roger Highfield.

The development of in vitro fertilisation, or IVF, culminating in the ‘miraculous’ birth of Louise Joy Brown on 25 July 1978, was a defining moment for reproductive technology pioneered by British researchers. Louise’s birth followed ten years of experimentation, hundreds of failed attempts and many setbacks for Robert Edwards, Patrick Steptoe and Jean Purdy, the scientists responsible for this remarkable achievement.

This event accompanied the launch of a new exhibition, IVF: 6 Million Babies Later opening at the Science Museum on 5 July 2018.
