The July issue of Reproduction marks the 40th anniversary of the first birth of a baby conceived by in vitro fertilisation. The issue is guest edited by Lord Robert Winston who, in his editorial, expresses concerns that advances in the field of reproductive medicine may be being hampered by a lack of fundamental academic research, which may be a result of regulatory bureaucracy.
The issue contains seven free-to-read anniversary reviews:
Davinia M White, Kate Hardy, Suzannah Lovelock, and Stephen Franks
Benjamin Fisch and Ronit Abir
Darren K Griffin and Cagri Ogur
C L O’Neill, S Chow, Z Rosenwaks, and G D Palermo
Anamaria C Herta, Francesca Lolicato, and Johan E J Smitz
