For those in the media

ACE: engaging with the Media

The Association of Clinical Embryologists (ACE) is the UK’s only professional body representing embryologists and now has in excess of 500 members, both in the UK and across the rest of the world.

ACE is managed by an elected group of highly experienced and committed senior embryologists and laboratory managers who are specialists in IVF, ICSI and associated fertility treatments and the ethical and moral issues surrounding them.  They are experienced spokespeople who are regularly called upon to give informed and insightful comment on the key issues affecting the world of embryology and assisted conception in general.

The ACE steering group members are all available for interview.

For all media enquiries or to arrange an interview with a spokesperson, please contact the ACE PR team.

Please check our news and events feed for breaking news from the Association of Clinical Embryologists or our press pages for more information on working with ACE, media relations and an archive of our previous press releases.
