1999 Gold Medal Award article

Professor Kypros Nicolaides is Director of the Harris Birthright Research Centre for Fetal Medicine based at Kings College Hospital London and Founding Director of The Fetal Medicine Foundation.
Professor Nicolaides trained at Kings College under the mentorship of Professors Stuart Campbell and Charles Rodeck where he specialised in fetoscopic techniques and procedures. He was awarded the ISUOG Ian Donald Gold Medal in 1999 for his outstanding contribution to the field, recognised in particular for his many publications on fetal physiology and pioneering more effective antenatal screening and fetoscopy techniques. His research publications on imaging and prenatal diagnosis have transformed ultrasound practice and his work to implement quality control for nuchal translucency has led to this technique becoming an established screening test for Down syndrome and other genetic conditions.
