About Us

Roger Gosden trained in reproductive endocrinology and embryology at Cambridge University under Sir Robert Edwards, sole winner of the 2010 Nobel Prize for in vitro fertilization treatment (IVF). After a fellowship at Duke University, NC, and an eighteen-year tenure at the Edinburgh Medical School in Scotland, he was a professor and research director at Leeds and McGill Universities, the Jones Institute for Reproductive Medicine in Virginia, and finally at Weill Medical College of Cornell University in New York City. Recognized for research on the ovary and fertility preservation technologies, he has been an editor and conference organizer, pioneer of online master degrees, consultant to industry and governments, and a visiting professor in several universities in North America, Europe and China.

LVG&me_thumbnailLucinda Veeck Gosden was the founding Director of Embryology for the first successful IVF team in America and a worldwide lecturer and consultant in clinical laboratory science. After a fifteen year tenure at the Jones Institute in Norfolk, Virginia, she became the Director of Clinical Embryology and Associate Professor at Weill Medical College of Cornell University.

Early retirement has given this husband and wife team both time and freedom to pursue writing and publishing projects that were postponed in busy careers.

Our published works include twelve monographs and edited works published by academic and trade publishers and Jamestowne Bookworks.  Between us, we have authored nearly 500 original scientific papers and reviews in journals and books, and have also contributed magazine articles and to national newspaper columns.

Our bookshelf

Our bookshelf

Dr. Veeck Gosden’s atlases of early human development have been standards of reference in clinical embryology for two decades. Dr. Gosden has written books for general readers about the biology of aging and the revolution in reproductive science which have been translated into several languages. His London agent was Maggie Pearlstine Associates.

We served for over thirty years as manuscript reviewers, editors, editorial board members, and advisers for academic journals and publishing houses.

Until open access journals dominate the scientific and medical literature, access is limited except for people with private subscriptions or have membership in an academic library. Any of our papers listed in PubMed or elsewhere will be made available as pdf copies on request to us at roger.gosden@jamestownebookworks.com.
