Professor Robert Edwards and the Marshall Laboratory

Our Scientific and Managing Director, Dr Kamal Ahuja, trained with Professor Edwards in his laboratory at Cambridge University. It was at this laboratory that much of the science which preceded the birth of Louise Brown, the world’s first IVF baby, was accomplished.
