More and more people are buying sperm and even eggs over the internet. How widespread is this? Is it legal? Should we encourage this or are the risks too great? And what is the human story behind the numbers? Join our panel of experts in exploring the future of internet-enabled assisted reproduction.

Confirmed speakers include:

Laura Witjens, CEO of the National Gamete Donation Trust.

Dr Lucy van de Wiel, Research Associate, Department of Sociology, University of Cambridge.

We expect to include additional members on the panel with personal and/or commercial involvement in the fertility industry.

Chair of the evening: Dan Reisel, Research Associate, Institute for Women’s Health, UCL.
