Date:10/5/2010

Cambridge, UK, 5 October 2010 Elsevier congratulates Cambridge scientist and Editor Emeritus of Reproductive BioMedicine Online (RBMOnline), Robert G. Edwards, who has been awarded with the 2010 Nobel Prize in Medicine for the development of in-vitro fertilisation (IVF), a breakthrough that has helped millions of infertile couples worldwide to have children. Professor Edwards, 85, started working on IVF, a procedure in which egg cells are fertilised outside the body and implanted in the womb, in the 1950s.

Professor Edwards founded the journal Reproductive BioMedicine Online in 2000 and published it independently for 10 years. Having developed it and ensured its place amongst the leading journals in the field of Reproductive Medicine, he began handing over the reins for the journal in 2009, becoming Editor Emeritus of RBMOnline. In 2010 Elsevier became the Publisher of this innovative journal, which promises to develop from strength to strength under its guardianship. Professor Edwards also cofounded the first IVF clinic in the world, Bourn Hall, where embryologists and doctors who received training went on to establish clinics worldwide.

According a statement released by the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine committee in Stockholm, Robert G. Edwards's achievements have made it possible to treat infertility, a medical condition afflicting a large proportion of humanity - more than 10% of all couples Approximately four million individuals have been born thanks to IVF... Today, Robert Edwards' vision is a reality and brings joy to infertile people all over the world .

"We offer our heartfelt congratulations to Professor Edwards on this most distinguished recognition of his achievements in medicine. As the publisher of Reproductive Biomedicine Online, Elsevier is honoured to build on Professor Edwards' legacy and many contributions to the medical literature," said Glen Campbell, Executive Vice President, Global Med
