The success of the ART laboratory is, of course, based on the staff who combine skill, experience, and dedication with state-of-the-art equipment to provide consistently good outcomes for our patients. The following are our senior staff members.
Catharine Adams, our ART Laboratory and Scientific Director, holds a Ph.D. in Mammalian Embryology from one of the most prestigious universities in the world, University of Cambridge (UK), where she performed her research on blastocyst development. Since 1985, when she began her career in IVF, she has, among other distinctions, that of being the embryologist for the second successful frozen embryo transfer in the United States 15 years ago. Dr. Adams is one of the first fully certified High Complexity Laboratory Directors (HCLD) in the U.S. Although very skilled technically, she is also well known in the infertility community for her ability and willingness to communicate complex embryologic concepts to patients.
Linda Anderson, our Senior Embryologist, has over 20 years experience in IVF, prenatal diagnosis, and cytogenetics. This broad range of technical experience makes her uniquely qualified to perform our preimplantation genetic diagnosis testing and analysis. After receiving a B.A. in zoology from San Diego State University, she completed graduate work in genetics and biochemistry there. Before joining Reproductive Sciences Center, she held positions at Children's Hospital, UCSD School of Medicine, and was Laboratory Supervisor at the Alvarado Hospital IVF program.
Dr. Adams and Ms. Anderson were among the first in this country to become nationally certified Reproductive Cryogenic Specialists. Both are perfectionistic in their work and are actively involved in a comprehensive quality assurance program. Both have been selected by CAP to inspect other ART laboratories seeking accreditation.
