Andy Glew is currently celebrating his 22nd year working in the field of clinical embryology.
His first position was a joint venture with Professor Ian Craft, Wellington Humana Hospital, London and Dr Robert Moor at the Institute of animal physiology and genetic research, Cambridge. This joint role gave Andy a good insight into both animal and human embryology and at the time the Humana IVF unit was the UK’s largest, performing several thousand cases a year.
In 1989 Andy co- established the Essex Fertility Centre, now the Herts and Essex Fertility Centre along with the Medical Director, Mr Michael Ah-Moye, where he currently manages a successful team undertaking 700 cycles per annum.
Andy was a founder executive member of the Association of Clinical Embryologists, and is currently an external inspector for the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority.
His interests encompass all aspects of embryology with particular interest in blastocyst transfer and the promotion of collaboration and sharing of information within the field. Andy is actively involved in developing electronic systems to enhance the manual witnessing systems in their labs.
He has also been involved in setting up and advising assisted reproductive centres in Serbia, Ghana, Durban and Nigeria and is currently acting as a consultant to Xytex International who supply donor sperm throughout the world.
