Emeritus Professor Colin Matthews AO
E/Prof Colin Matthews AO, MB ChB, MD, FRCOG, CREI, worked for three decades in world-leading advances in the management of human infertility. His work included, frozen sperm for donor insemination in 1971, IVF and Gnrh Agonists in the 1980's, and Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection and Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis in the 1990's.
The establishment of Repromed in 1987 provided increased revenue which allowed the rapid expansion of research and personnel, together with the support of obstetric and other research programs within the University.
"Despite all these thriller advances, I personally gained the greatest academic satisfaction from our pioneering work with Melatonin and elucidating exactly how photoperiodic seasonal breeding animals turn on and off their reproduction annually. It was a privlege to have wonderful colleagues." Prof Colin Matthews, 2013.
