BSc (Hons) Biological Sciences, ICSI Practitioner
Laboratory Manager, Senior Clinical Scientist
Prior to specialising in clinical embryology, Mark gained extensive experience in tissue culture and developmental biology techniques during more than 15 years working in research laboratories.
Mark joined the IVF unit at King’s College London in 1994 to establish the micromanipulation facility and gained a licence to practice ICSI. He has trained embryologists and helped set up a number of IVF laboratories both in the UK and abroad.
Since joining the Fertility Centre at Salisbury in 2003, Mark has been heavily involved in the ongoing expansion of the fertility services and the evaluation of equipment and techniques resulting in the continuing improvements in patient care. This has included the introduction of time lapse cameras to assist in IVF and ICSI treatment cycles.
“Working in IVF for the past 25 years has been very rewarding as there has been constant innovation that has helped improve success rates. At Salisbury we have a small team where we get to meet and know the patients. I enjoy working in an NHS unit as it feels there is less of a commercial pressure.”
