Morehouse School of Medicine (MSM) and Emory University (EU) have been awarded a unique partnership grant to promote workforce diversity and education in the reproductive sciences and women’s health. We invite eligible sophomore students interested in doctoral careers in reproductive sciences to apply for a 2- year research development program with the Atlanta Center for Translational Research in Endometriosis (ACTRE pronounced “actor”). The goal of the ACTRE scholar program is to
introduce under-represented minority students to translational human reproductive research that demonstrate 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 and 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 our program web site and scholars will have an opportunity to submit research findings for presentation at national meetings in reproductive sciences. ACTRE 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).
