Amy Jones, MS, ELD (ABB) Ovation Fertility™ Genetics lab scientific director
Ms. Jones graduated with high honors in Human Biology from Emory University and began her career in Assisted Reproduction by working in research with non-human primates at the Yerkes Primate Research Center in Atlanta, Georgia. Due to her interest in patient care and desire to aid infertile couples, she made the move from research to clinical embryology at Reproductive Biology Associates (RBA) in 1994. Over the next decade she worked in Manchester England, introducing the ICSI technique to the IVF lab at BUPA hospital; Bologna Italy as a senior embryologist at SISMER; Valencia Spain as Laboratory Director at IMER; and Bombay India as a contract embryologist for Malpani Fertility Services. Finally she returned to RBA and served as the IVF Lab supervisor for 8 years.
Ms. Jones received a Masters degree with honors from Donau University of Krems in Austria and has worked in labs in the United States, Europe, and Asia. She has won awards for her work in the area of oocyte cryopreservation. She has several publications in journals such as Human Reproduction and Fertility and Sterility and has presented her research at national and international meetings.
In addition to establishing the embryo vitrification program at Nashville Fertility Center, in 2009 Ms Jones developed the oocyte vitrifcation program at NFC and this program has proven to be successful and has altered the way we manage our egg donor and recipients.
She currently serves on the board of the College of Reproductive Biology of the American Association of Bioanalysts and serves as an off-site IVF lab director.
