Mar 9 @ 8:30 am – 9:30 am

After 2 years, we are excited to commence our Endowed Lectureships this year!

Featured Speaker: Anne Steiner, MD, MPH – “Biomarkers of Reproductive Potential”

Editor in Chief
F&S Reviews – an ASRM journal that publishes both systematic and comprehensive, authoritative review articles spanning reproductive medicine or science.

Dr. Steiner is nationally recognized as an infertility specialist and reproductive epidemiologist. She received her MPH from the University of North Carolina (UNC), in 2003. Her MD degree was awarded magna cum laude from Emory University School of Medicine in 1998. She then completed both her internship and residency in OBGYN at UNC and fellowship in the Division of Reproductive Endocrinology & Infertility (REI) at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles. She joined UNC as a Women’s Reproductive Health Scholar in 2006 and has remained continually funded by the NIH since (R21, R01, U10 grants). Dr. Steiner was then appointed as the new Chief of the Division of REI at Duke University School of Medicine in 2018.
Her research focuses on reproductive aging, antimüllerian hormone (AMH), and predictors of fertility and infertility and fecundity. She completed Time to Conceive, a prospective, time-to-pregnancy cohort study, which enrolled over 750 women ages 30-44. The results of this study, published last year in JAMA and featured in the New York Times and Forbes, and on NPR and CNN, demonstrated that biomarkers of ovarian reserve are not predictors of reproductive potential in the general population, debunking anti-mullerian hormone as a “female fertility test.”  Dr. Steiner also serves as the Editor-in-Chief for F&S Reviews, an ASRM journal that publishes both systematic and comprehensive, authoritative review articles spanning reproductive medicine or science.
