Anne Steiner
Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology

Dr. Steiner's research focuses on reproductive aging, antimüllerian hormone (AMH), and predictors of fertility and infertility.  Her research collaborators include Donna Baird, PhD, MPH and Anne Marie Jukic, PhD in the Epidemiology Branch of NIEHS. She recently completed Time to Conceive, a prospective, time-to-pregnancy cohort study, which enrolled over 750 women ages 30-44. The purpose of the NICHD-funded study was to determine if markers of ovarian reserve are predictors of reproductive potential.  Dr. Steiner also is the primary investigator for the Duke site of the Reproductive Medicine Network.  The Network is funded by the NICHD to conduct clinical studies to investigate problems in reproductive medicine including female and male infertility. She is also the primary investigator for the NICHD Reproductive Medicine Network MOXI trial, which seeks to determine if treatment of infertile males with antioxidants improves male fertility. 

Dr. Steiner has served an associate editor for Fertility & Sterility and Human Reproduction.  She was a Women’s Reproductive Health Research Scholar and has received a number of awards including a Junior Faculty Award and the Jefferson Pilot Fellowship Award.

Dr. Steiner received her MPH from the UNC School of Public Health in 2003. Her MD degree was awarded magna cum laude from Emory University School of Medicine in 1998. Dr. Steiner completed both her internship and residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology at UNC.  Prior to her appointment at UNC, she was a Fellow in the Division of Reproductive Endocrinology & Infertility at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles.
