This photo was taken in October 2007 in Washington D.C. almost 3 years to the day before Robert Edwards, co-father of IVF, was awarded the Nobel Prize for medicine. That’s me on the left. This was back in the day of digital tape recorders. We chatted for 30 minutes about the work that drove his life and changed my life, and the lives of millions of others. The following recording is an edited version of that interview and was prepared specifically for Bourn Hall’s blog.

The sound quality isn’t very good so please use the transcript below.  It does give you a feel for Prof Edwards enthusiasm and passion for his work.
