The Symposium, hosted by the Society for Reproduction and Fertility (SRF), is being held to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the birth of Louise Brown.
The Greater Manchester area has a long tradition in reproductive medicine, stretching back to Walter Heape in the 19th century and Bob Edwards who grew up and went to school in central Manchester. The symposium venue is within sight of Bob Edwards’ old school. Patrick Steptoe famously practiced in Oldham, and the pioneering IVF work leading to Louise Brown was carried out by Edwards, Jean Purdy and Steptoe at Dr Kershaw’s Cottage Hospital in Royton, the world’s first successful IVF clinic.
The main scientific programme will follow a general theme of 'what have we learned from 40 years of human ART, and what will the next 40 years bring?' and will encompass basic and clinical aspects of reproductive science and medicine including regulation, ethics, and future treatments beyond ART. We have gathered together eminent speakers in these disciplines to create an exciting programme.
