Nobel Prize Winner Robert Edwards: A Personal Memoir by the Only American Physician to Participate in Developing IVF
Date:12/13/2010

fertilization technology could work when the first IVF baby, Louise Brown, was born on July 25, 1978, but the controversy associated with IVF became even more widespread as newspapers trumpeted the birth of the first "test tube baby." Potential parents around the world embraced the technology that could give them children, however, and millions of IVF babies have been born.  The creation of IVF also led to other medical advances that have helped millions of patients.

"Robert G. Edwards: A Personal Viewpoint" is available from Amazon.com for $9.95 per copy.

After graduating from Harvard Medical School, Joseph D. Schulman trained first as a pediatrician and later completed a genetics fellowship at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) from 1968 to 1970. While at NIH, he decided to specialize in the fields of human genetics and reproduction, and subsequently was fully trained in obstetrics and gynecology at the New York Hospital-Cornell Medical Center.  Following his work with Drs. Edwards and Steptoe, Dr. Schulman was the first director of the Medical Genetics Program at NIH, where he was a research scientist and served on the faculty for ten years. In 1984, Dr. Schulman founded Genetics & IVF Institute (GIVF), headquartered in Fairfax, VA, to provide cutting edge infertility and genetic diagnosis and treatment.  GIVF is responsible for more than 20,000 pregnancies around the world.  Now retired from active practice, Dr. Schulman continues to serve as Chairman of GIVF's Board of Directors.
