Father of IVF Wins Nobel Prize

Warmest congratulations to Robert Edwards who just won the Nobel Medicine Prize for his ground-breaking work in the development of in-vitro fertilisation (IVF).  
Dr Edwards, 85, won the prestigious prize for his work on IVF, which has helped millions of infertile couples to have a child.  
"His contributions represent a milestone in the development of modern medicine," the Nobel Assembly at the Swedish Karolinska Institute said. 
"His achievements have made it possible to treat infertility, a medical condition afflicting a large proportion of humanity including more than 10 per cent of all couples worldwide," it added.
