Professor’s Corner with Daniel Brison


We are very sorry to learn today of the death of Lisa Jardine after a long battle with cancer.


Professor Jardine was an eminent scholar and the daughter of Jacob Bronowski, author of The Ascent of Men, a book which had a major influence on me. She served as Chair of the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority from 2008 – 2014 during which time I met her many times as a member of their Scientific and Clinical Advances Advisory Committee. I particularly enjoyed her sharp intellect and many fascinating conversations on a range of subjects.
