Robert Edwards, the British scientist who pioneered the development of ‘test-tube babies’ conceived through in vitro fertilization (IVF), died. Edwards, who won the Nobel Prize for medicine in 2010, died after a long illness, Reuters said, citing the university where he worked. He started work on fertilization in the 1950s, and the first test tube baby, Louise Brown, was born in 1978 as a result of his pioneering research. He founded the world’s first IVF clinic in his hometown of Cambridge, UK, in 1980.
