John Biggers 1923-2018

ESHRE shares the sadness of so many others in learning of the untimely death of John Biggers, Professor Emeritus of Harvard Medical School, USA. John was born and trained in England, where in 1958 he and Anne McLaren published their landmark paper in Nature describing the first successful culture of an early mammalian (mouse) embryo, which would lay the foundations of successful IVF 20 years later, and indeed of modern clinical embryology.
