Ep 66. Professor David Gardner - The Science Behind IVF
Today Dr Renee White sits down with Professor David Gardner, an IVF pioneer and world-renowned scientist, as well as Virtus Health’s Group Director of ART, Scientific Innovation & Research and Scientific Director of Melbourne IVF.
They discuss the evolution of IVF technology, what were the big leaps in discovery and how is artificial intelligence playing a role in successful IVF outcomes.
Much of David’s research has been successfully translated into clinical procedures, with the majority of human IVF clinics around the world utilising some of the technologies he developed. Professor Gardner pioneered blastocyst culture and transfer, and developed the grading system which carries his namesake the 'Gardner Grade’ which is used internationally to grade human blastocysts.
