Interview

Following the announcement, Professor Christer Höög told senior editor Simon Frantz how the 2010 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine is unique in Nobel Prize history, as this year's prize is the first awarded in the area of reproduction. Christer Höög explained that recent follow up studies showing that IVF children are as healthy as normally conceived children, were a contributing factor for awarding Robert G. Edwards the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 2010 and not earlier.
