MEETING A PIONEER IN BRUSSELS

The Belgian Society of Reproductive Medicine surprised me with my final 40th birthday cake when I attended their conference in Brussels.

It was an honour to be seated next to Prof Andre van Steirteghem, who was one of the early pioneers of IVF in the 1980s and swap stories about Robert Edwards. Professor van Steirteghem made an amazing breakthrough in 1992 with the development of ICSI, the Intra Cytoplasmic Sperm Injection, which has made a huge difference in helping infertile men.
