Dr Natasha Hammond-Browning was invited to speak at an international conference at the University of Lancaster (September 2016). The conference, ‘The Ethics of Uterus Transplantation’, was organised as part of a Wellcome grant awarded to Professor Rosamund Scott (KCL) and Professor Stephen Wilkinson (Lancaster). The conference brought together academics and clinicians from around the globe to debate the ethics and to discuss the medical progress being made in the field of uterus transplantation. Dr Hammond-Browning’s paper, ‘Undue concerns about uterus transplantation? Or, is ectogenesis the way forward?’ discussed concerns of uterus transplantation, and whether artificial wombs were the solution to those concerns.
