Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Edwin Carlyle "Carl" Wood, AC, CBE, FRCS, FRANZCOG (b. 28 May 1929) is a prominent Australian gynaecologist best known for his pioneering work developing and commercialising the technique of In Vitro Fertilisation (IVF). He gained considerable international and national attention for his wide-ranging contributions in the field of Women's Health over a period of almost 50 years, although not all of it was positive given the controversial nature of many of his endeavours. After completing his education at Wesley College, Melbourne he graduated in medicine with honours at Melbourne University in 1952. Professor Wood then held positions as Research Associate at the Rockefeller Institute in New York, and Senior Lecturer in Obstetrics and Gynaecology at Queen Charlotte's and Chelsea Hospital for Women in London before becoming the Foundation Professor and Chairman of the Monash University Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology at the Queen Victoria Hospital and Monash Medical Centre in 1964.show more
