Soup and Sandwich Seminar: Reproduction: Genetics or Family

May 16, 2018 at 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.

TimeMay 16, 2018 at 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Description

Speaker of the seminar, Dr. Alison Murdoch is a Professor of Reproductive Medicine at Newcastle University, England. Dr. Murdoch is the Robert E. and Susan T. Rydell Professor for the academic year at Gustavus and was a speaker at the 2017 Nobel Conference (Reproductive Technology: How Far Do We Go?)

This talk will cover the historical aspects of the development of IVF over 40 years that have resulted in the birth of over 7 million children worldwide. Whilst providing the happiness of a family life for many, it has also focused attention on our genetic origin, maybe at the expense of parenting. New diagnostic tests related to conception result in patient choices that have changed reproductive options.
