Professor Simon Fishel, PhD, founded CARE back in 1997. Even before he started our fertility group he was already a big name in the field of fertility treatment, recognised for his pioneering work in embryology and IVF. In fact, Simon was part of the team involved in the birth of the world’s first IVF baby in 1978.
Since then Simon’s remained at the forefront of pioneering IVF research, working hard to develop new procedures, tests, and treatments that allow us to give our patients the very best chance of success – including amongst many other innovations human sperm microinjection, CAREmaps, and C4M2 testing.
Having dedicated his working life to the research into and treatment of fertility problems, Simon’s an acclaimed international scientist, and has published more than 200 papers and edited four books on the development of IVF technology. He’s won many awards for his work in the field and was awarded the Honorary Fellowship from Liverpool John Moores University in 2009 for his "outstanding contribution to science and humanity".
Simon uses all of this work and knowledge to create the best possible experience for every patient at CARE and the generations to come – and he’s with you every step of the way.
