Three University of Melbourne scientists have been elected as Fellows of the Australian Academy of Science, a rare honour, for their outstanding contributions to science.

Australian scientists have developed a potentially groundbreaking new measure of the health of an embryo and the likelihood of a successful pregnancy in IVF treatment.
The research could lead to significantly improved birth rates in IVF to help the one in six Australian couples experiencing infertility to achieve their dream of parenthood.
It also has the potential to predict the gender of an embryo prior to implantation.
