The Centre for Global Health Histories (CGHH) at the University of York is running a number public lectures in York in the coming months.

6 May:
The 2015 William Bynum Lecture – ‘The Many Births of the Test-Tube Baby’ with Dr Nick Hopwood. Born following in vitro fertilization in Oldham in 1978, Louise Brown made global news as the first ‘test-tube baby’. Yet since the 1940s various researchers had already reported having fertilized human eggs to produce embryos and even infants. The lecture will ask how they pressed these claims and how their colleagues assessed and contested them. Visit us online for more details.
Please note that the date is 6th May, not 7th May as previously advertised.
