Atlanta Center for Translational Research in Endometriosis (ACTRE) is made possible through a Cooperative Research Partnership to Promote Workforce Diversity grant from the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health & Human Development (NICHD)

MSM and Emory University have been awarded a unique partnership grant to promote workforce diversity and education in the reproductive sciences and women’s health.  Eligible rising junior and senior students interested in doctoral careers in reproductive sciences are invited to apply to a 1-year research development program with ACTRE (pronounced “actor”).  The goal of the ACTRE scholar program is to introduce students from under-represented minorities to translational human reproductive research that demonstrates how cellular and molecular biology bridge the way to clinical therapeutic treatments in reproductive medicine.
