• Brief Profile


    Dr Indira Hinduja is an MD in Gynaecology and Obstetrics and she was awarded the PhD degree for her thesis entitled 'Human In Vitro Fertilization and Embryo Transfer' from the Bombay University when she was a full time practising Obstetrician and Gynaecologist on the clinical faculty of the Seth G.S. Medical College and King Edward Memorial Hospital, Bombay. This significant contribution lies in combining her basic successful surgical skills with those of experimental embryology, endocrinology and cell biology, which led to the first ever, scientifically documented ‘test tube baby’ in the country on 6th August 1986. This creditable achievement has been the result of the collaborated efforts of the KEM Hospital and Institute for Research in Reproduction (ICMR). She is the pioneer on Gamete Intra Fallopian Transfer (GIFT) technique resulting in the birth of India’s first GIFT baby on 4th January 1988. She is also credited for developing a oocyte donation technique for menopausal and premature ovarian failure patients, giving the country’s first baby out of this technique on 24th January 1991. She is very active in the field of research and is involved in a number of research projects. For her outstanding performances, she has been felicitated on many occasions. She is also the recipient of many awards, amongst which Young Indian Award (1987), Outstanding Lady Citizen of Maharashtra State Jaycee Award (1987), Bharat Nirman Award for Talented Ladies (1994), International Women’s Day Award by the Mayor of Bombay (1995; 2000), Life time Achievement Award by Federation of Obstetrics & Gynaecological Society of India (1999) and Dhanvantari Award by The Governor of Maharashtra (2000) are a few. Dr Hinduja's research work has resulted more than 100 publications in national and international medical journals.
