Ruby Balcombe

I joined the Assisted Conception Unit at Guy’s Hospital in 2020 where I work as a Reproductive Science Practitioner. I have a master’s degree in Reproductive Medicine: Science and Ethics and will begin my Embryology STP post in September 2023 at the St Helier Hospital. I am passionate about giving a platform to the voice of trainee reproductive scientists, and as a committee member I act as a bridge between ARCS and the trainee cohorts. I look forward to working with other committee members to improve the experience for pre-registration scientists as they progress in their early career.
