Profile image for Susan Golombok

Susan Golombok is Professor Emerita of Family Research and former Director of the Centre for Family Research at the University of Cambridge. She has pioneered research on modern families, including families created by assisted reproductive technologies such as IVF, donor insemination, egg donation and surrogacy, as well as families with same-sex parents, transgender parents, and single parents by choice. Her research challenges commonly held assumptions about these families and has contributed to policy and legislation on the family nationally and internationally. Her most recent book We Are Family shows that what matters most for children is the quality of family relationships rather than the structure of the family in which they grow up.
