Dr. Stephen Troup, Consultant Reproductive Scientist

Steve has worked in the field of clinical embryology for over 30 years starting in Manchester, where he completed a PhD in male infertility. Before his role as the Scientific Director of IVI UK, Steve was the Scientific Director of Liverpool Women's Hospital’s Hewitt Fertility Centres, one of the UK’s largest assisted conception providers. In addition to dealing with the many day-to-day ‘hands-on’, managerial and research responsibilities of a Consultant Clinical Embryologist, Steve is fortunate to have been afforded a broader perspective as a Scientific Inspector and advisor for the UK Regulator, the HFEA. Steve has been very much involved in clinical embryology as a profession, and is the current President of the Association of Clinical Embryologists’ (ACE). Steve is a Visiting Reader in Reproductive Medicine at Edge Hill University and now works independently as a Consultant Reproductive Scientist based in the UK.
