Jared C. Robins, MD

Jared C. Robins, MD, is working to improve access to care and IVF safety. Dr. Bulun and his team developed a unique protocol to retrieve immature eggs from the ovaries, mature them in the laboratory, fertilize the matured eggs and transfer embryos to the patient's uterus. His protocol results in a pregnancy rate nearly equal to traditional IVF. Because it uses minimal amounts of medications, this protocol significantly decreases the cost of IVF while reducing the risk of complications. This research protocol advances the initial research by broadening the patient base and determining whether the use this protocol is valuable in a low-resource population.
