after dinner

Science & Medical Speaker

Lord Robert Winston is a Professor of Science and Society and Emeritus Professor of Fertility Studies at Imperial College London and a speaker on science and education, and an entertaining after-dinner speaker.

Lord Winston came to prominence in the 1970s when he developed gynecological surgical techniques that improved fertility treatments. He later pioneered new treatments to improve in vitro fertilisation (IVF) and established a pre-implantation diagnosis.

This allows embryos to be screened for genetic diseases and has allowed parents carrying faulty genes to have children free of illnesses such as cystic fibrosis.

He now runs a research programme at the Institute of Reproductive and Developmental Biology at Imperial College that aims to improve human transplantation. Robert Winston has over 300 scientific publications about human reproduction and the early stages of pregnancy.

Robert Winston is also Chairman of the Genesis Research Trust – a charity which raised over £13 million to establish the Institute of Reproductive and Developmental Biology and which now funds high-quality research into women’s health and babies.
Professor Winston was also Chairman of the governing body of the Royal College of Music until 2017, and he is on the board of trustees of this UK Stem Cell Foundation
