The Jane Fonda Center for Adolescent Reproductive Health The Jane Fonda Center for Adolescent Reproductive Health was created in the year 2000 with a lead gift from Jane Fonda.

The mission of the Jane Fonda Center is to advance scientific knowledge about adolescence with an emphasis on adolescent reproductive health. It seeks to disseminate information and strategies for risk reduction and healthy transitions to adulthood.

Regional Training Center

From 1970 to 2008, the Emory Regional Training Center (RTC) served as the training resource for federal Region IV of the Title X Family Planning program. The mission of the Center these many years was to enhance well-being among women and their families through the communication of new knowledge and buttressing clinical skills by providing regular training updates to those who deliver care to the patients of Title X clinics. In June 2008, an application to renew the federal grant that funded nearly 90% of the Emory RTC operations was submitted. Competition for funding was intense and despite having been continuously funded for more than 30 years, the Emory RTC was not selected as the training center for federal Region IV and was not granted renewed funding by the Federal Office of Public Health and Science. With the loss of this responsibility and the funding to support it, the Emory RTC closed on November 30, 2008.

Emory Reproductive Center

The Emory Reproductive Center is committed to making the dream of parenthood a reality for hundreds of couples every year. We know the journey to fulfilling that dream is often a complex and deeply emotional one - so we rely on our unparalleled expertise, compassion, and the latest In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) medical procedures that include Intracytoplasmic Sperm Insertion (ICSI), Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis, and assisted hatching. In fact, our IVF pregnancy success rates exceed the national average.

As part of Emory University School of Medicine in Atlanta, Georgia, the Emory Reproductive Center is uniquely qualified to treat obstacles to fertility. We provide care for a range of medical issues, such as endometriosis, genetic issues, age-related infertility, Polycystic Ovary Syndrome, male infertility, recurrent miscarriage, low ovarian reserve and stress-induced infertility.

IVF success rates at the Emory Reproductive Center demonstrate how effectively our experts treat patients to consistently achieve outstanding results. Our IVF treatments are performed by skilled, board certified reproductive endocrinologists who ensure that you receive only the best care. Our fertility specialists take great care to optimize the number of embryos transferred to our patients during IVF treatments, thus minimizing the risk of multiple births and reducing pregnancy related and neonatal risks.

Emory Regional Perinatal Center

The Emory Regional Perinatal Center at Grady Health System is dedicated to treating women with high risk pregnancies to provide a healthy life for mothers and babies. It is staffed by members of Emory's Maternal-Fetal Medicine division and is the largest of the six regional high-risk infant care centers in the state. 

The Emory Regional Perinatal Center at Grady Health System was organized in 1977. This center accepts referrals of patients not normally eligible for admission to Grady for tertiary level high risk maternity care. These patients are very high risk and require appropriate diagnostic evaluation and often intensive care. Contraction stress tests, percutaneous umbilical blood sampling, non-stress tests, amniocentesis, genetic counseling, ultrasonography, and many other tests and services are available to these patients.

Atlanta Center for Translational Research in Endometriosis (ACTRE)

As part of a unique partnership between Morehouse School of Medicine and Emory University to promote workforce diversity and education in the reproductive sciences and women's health, the Atlanta Center for Translational Research in Endometriosis (ACTRE) was established in 2010 with the goal to introduce students from under-represented minorities to a 2-year research development program in translational human reproductive research that demonstrates how cellular and molecular biology bridge the way to clinical therapeutic treatments in reproductive medicine.

During this 2-year program, scholars will receive training in translational research principles and reproductive science topics, laboratory techniques, create a professional development plan and shadow clinical specialists in Gynecologic Surgery and Reproductive Endocrinology & Infertility. Undergraduate scholars will conduct supervised translational research with a focus on a serious and common women's health issue - endometriosis. At the end of the second year, participants will take part in a formal research symposium. Approved posters and abstracts will be published through the program website and scholars will have an opportunity to submit research findings for presentation at national meetings in reproductive sciences.

ACTRE (pronounced "actor"), is sponsored by a grant from the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD), a part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH). Principal Investigators providing oversight to the program are Neil Sidell, PhD from Emory University and Winston E. Thompson, PhD from Morehouse School of Medicine. Since the program's inception, there have been 10 scholars from Emory University and Spellman College in Atlanta, GA.
