Jessica Spencer, M.D.

Associate Professor and Division Director, REI, Department of Gynecology & Obstetrics
Program Director, Fellowship in Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility
Emory University School of Medicine, Atlanta, GA

A native of Los Angeles, Jessica Spencer completed her residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology at UCLA in 2005. She came to Emory for her fellowship in Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility and also completed a Masters in Clinical Research. She joined the faculty at Emory in 2008 and became Division Director in 2014. The division has since grown substantially and expanded its patient services. She sees patients who are seeking treatment for infertility, recurrent pregnancy loss, and fertility preservation. Dr Spencer has been recognized as an Atlanta Top Doctor since 2015 and won several institutional awards for excellent patient satisfaction. She also serves as a board examiner for American Board of Obstetricians and Gynecologists.

Dr Spencer’s research focuses in part on fertility and reproductive outcomes in cancer survivors as well as the mechanisms of ovarian insufficiency in galactosemia and the Fragile X premutation. She was a co-investigator on the FUCHSIA Women’s Study, a study of fertility in cancer survivors which examined the reproductive impact and counseling on cancer survivors. With her collaborators in human genetics at Emory, they have shown that girls and women with classic galactosemia do not show evidence of abnormally functioning FSH but do have profound diminished ovarian reserve compared with girls and women of the same age without galactosemia. More recently, Dr Spencer and her collaborators have explored the effect gonadotoxic therapies for sickle cell disease and lupus have on ovarian reserve and menstrual function. She is very active in teaching and has been the REI program fellowship director since 2014.

In addition to her work at Emory, she chairs the medical committee of the Jewish Fertility Foundation, an Atlanta based organization that provides grants to couples who cannot afford fertility treatment. She also consults for JScreen, another nonprofit that educates and improves access to expanded carrier screening. She is a strong advocate for improving access to reproductive care for the LGBT community and to fertility preservation for cancer patients and survivors.
