Initiation into Research
Dr. Sudarsan Ghosh Dastidar was a beloved student of late Dr. Subhas Mukherjee who was successful in delivering India's first test tube baby in 1978, the same year that Dr. Bob Edwards and Patrick Steptoe delivered the World's first IVF baby in Cambridge, England. His novel work however met with intense criticism from the medical community since his work was not very standardized and he did not maintain any meticulous records or micro-photographic evidence of the program. He was ostracized and committed suicide, which even inspired a motion picture in Hindi. After Dr. Mukherjee's death Dr. Ghosh Dastidar took on the mantle to develop India's second test-tube baby program in Calcutta in 1982 from scratch in collaboration with Dr. B. Chakravarty.

In 1991 Dr. Ghosh Dastidar established Calcutta's second test tube baby program in gariahat, Calcutta which is credited with the birth of India's first test-tube baby by ICSI technology, widely considered to be the biggest advancement in infertility research since IVF in 1978. He expanded Ghosh Dastidar Institute for Fertility Research to 36 A/1 S.P.Mukherjee road in 2007 and till now has delivered thousands of babies by IVF and ICSI. He has delivered lectures and presented research papers in various international conferences and meetings, the latest being at the ESHRE annual conference in Amsterdam in June, 2009.
