Select Committee on Science and Technology Written Evidence

Memorandum 32

Submission from the Association of Clinical Embryologists


  The Association of Clinical Embryologists (ACE) was formed in 1993 to promote high standards of practice in clinical embryology and to support the professional interests of clinical embryologists working in the UK. It is a professional body for clinical embryologists.


  ACE is presently consulting its membership for an overall viewpoint. However, many members of ACE support the creation of in vitro chimera embryos and therapeutic cloning since there are many potential benefits for the fields of infertility and medicine, including a greater understanding of the fertilisation process. The limited number of human eggs available for research presently limits research.

  ACE is happy to provide any further written or oral evidence as required.
