Robert Edwards of Britain won the 2010 Nobel Prize in medicine on Monday for the development of in-vitro fertilisation (IVF), a breakthrough that has helped millions of infertile couples have children. The 85-year-old Edwards started working on IVF, a technique in which egg cells are fertilised outside the body and implanted in the womb, already in 1950s. On July 25, 1978, Louise Brown in Britain became the first baby born through the groundbreaking procedure. The medicine award was the first of the 2010 Nobel Prizes to be announced in a week's time.
