Professor Sir Robert Edwards CBE FRS (1925 – 2013)
The Society for Reproduction and Fertility is greatly saddened to hear of the death of Professor Sir Robert Edwards CBE FRS. In collaboration with Dr Patrick Steptoe, Professor Edwards pioneered the development of in vitro fertilization and its use in humans; work which culminated in the birth of the world’s first ‘test tube baby’ Louise Brown in 1978, and for which Professor Edwards received the Nobel Prize for Physiology and Medicine in 2010. In 1991, the SRF awarded Professor Edwards the Marshall Medal - the Society’s highest honour - awarded to outstanding contributors to the study of fertility and reproduction.
