Sue is also very active in the process of training and supporting the next generation of scientists and is an assessor for the training program for clinical embryologists.


“I have an expert team and I am particularly proud that we can offer you treatments that are based on sound scientific evidence. Four members of our team had their work selected to present to a national scientific fertility conference in January 2018 because their high quality research was judged as being important in helping continuously improve IVF. Having such a highly skilled and experienced embryology team (over one hundred years of experience between us!) means we really can do everything possible to help you have a family.” – Sue Montgomery
