Published in ASRM Announcement
ASRM would like to honor Howard W. Jones, Jr., M.D., a pioneer of assisted reproductive medicine. Dr. Jones and his wife, Georgeanna Seegar Jones, M.D., were the first to perform a successful in vitro fertilization (IVF) procedure in the United States. To honor this achievement as well as their 60-year career in reproductive medicine, ASRM has established the Howard and Georgeanna Jones symposium to be held at the ASRM Annual Meeting.
Dr. Jones is interviewed below by Dr. Suheil Muasher about the beginnings of IVF.
You can also watch Dr. Jones speak about IVF in the 21st Century at his birthday celebration held during the 2010 ASRM Annual Meeting.
