IVF is 40 – the world’s first IVF clinic is celebrating 40 years since the birth of Louise Brown, the world’s first test-tube baby, and the breakthroughs in fertility treatment in the decades since.
After their success the IVF pioneers Patrick Steptoe, Robert Edwards and Jean Purdy established a clinic to transform a scientific breakthrough into a robust medical treatment. This work took place at Bourn Hall and the clinic is still at lead of patient care and treatment.
