Susan Golombok

Susan Golombok is Professor of Family Research and Director of the Centre for Family Research at the University of Cambridge. Susan has pioneered research on new family forms including families created through assisted reproductive technologies, such as egg donation and surrogacy, and families with same-sex and transgender parents. Her forthcoming book, We Are Family, which will be published by Scribe in 2020, tells the stories of these families and challenges the widely-held assumption that children in new family forms are less likely to flourish than are children in traditional families. Susan has advised policy-makers and legislators around the world on same-sex marriage and assisted reproduction. She regularly gives presentations about her research to public audiences in the UK and internationally, and her work has been widely reported in the media.
