Dear Members of the Swiss Society of Reproductive Medicine,

sadly we herewith communicate to you that on April 10, Robert « Bob » Edwards has passed away.
As you all know, the 2010 Nobel Laureate Sir Robert G. Edwards was the first to, together with Patrick Steptoe, to demonstrate to the world that IVF can be performed successfully by achieving the birth of the first test-tube baby « Louise Brown » on July 25th 1978.
Without his achievement the first IVF-baby in Switzerland, Jelena, born in April 1985, would not have been born, nor the 17‘715 babies, whose births were registered by FIVNAT after IVF or ICSI in Switzerland since 1993.
We are utterly grateful for the commitment of Bob Edwards in initiating and promoting modern assisted reproductive technology. In Switzerland, more than 1.5% of all newborn children in Switzerland now result from the technology originated by Bob Edwards.

Prof. Christian De Geyter
President of SGRM

September 2012

The Swice Board has the great sadness to inform you about the sudden passing of our colleague and friend Philipp Scheurer last September. Philipp has participated in our meetings for many years and was a member of our board since 2010. He was highly dedicated to IVF and was the head of the IVF laboratory at Gyn-ART in Zürich. We will miss his kindness and his enthusiasm. Our kind thoughts go out to his family, friends and colleagues.

Françoise Urner
President SWICE
