About the Author

Robert Winston

Professor Robert Winston belongs to that rare breed of scientists who combine academic brilliance with charisma and a flair for communication with the general public.

A household name thanks to popular TV series that include The Human Body, which one three baftas, Superhuman, Walking with Cavemen, and The Human Mind, Lord Winston's personal charisma and zest for adventure have seen him riding rollercoasters and freezing in an igloo to help demonstrate science in action.

His pioneering work in the field of human fertility helped thousands of childless couples have "miracle babies" and earned him an outstanding international reputation.

A winner of the Royal Society's prestigious Michael Faraday Gold Award, he was made a life peer in 1995. He is Consultant in Reproductive Medicine at Hammersmith Hospital and Professor of Fertility Studies at Imperial College, London.
