During the 1978-1980 he was the first to publish on the metabolic responsiveness of embryos to their environment, and he also published on demonstrating the presence of specific uterine glycoproteins suggesting bidirectional signalling. Simon joined Patrick and Bob at Bourn Hall as Deputy Scientific Director when it opened in 1980, where he was part of the “original” clinical team of four undertaking IVF (the other member being John Webster). In 1979 he was appointed a Research Fellow at Churchill College, and on the same night as Bob Edwards was appointed a Fellow of the same college. In 1980 he was awarded the prestigious Beit Memorial Fellowship and in1984 Simon was the first to publish on the secretion of HCG by the human embryo. He has published over 200 papers and three books and, with Alison Campbell, the first atlas of time-lapse images of the human embryo. His pioneering work in the field of IVF has resulted in many honorary awards from countries such as Japan, Austria, Italy, South Africa and the US, amongst others. In 1992 he founded the world first degree course in IVF and he has advised several international Government committees reviewing policy and legislation on IVF, including advisors to the Vatican. In 1997 he was awarded a Personal Professional Chair in Human Reproduction, is an elected Fellow of the Royal Society of Biology and in 2009 was honoured by the Liverpool John Moores University with their highest award of ‘University Fellow’ for “outstanding contribution to science and to humanity”. He Founded the Rachel Foundation, a charity for both research to help children rendered infertile due to medical treatment, and also to help raise awareness for secondary infertility. Simon is Co-Founder and Co-Chair of CoGEN:  Controversies in Preconception, Preimplantation and Prenatal Genetic Diagnosis. Simon is also Co-Founder and CEO of ProFaM, the world first organisation to off ovarian tissue cryopreservation for premenopausal hormonal preservation, along with fertility preservation.
