Introducing the 2024 PRIMED Scholars Cohort

Valerie Lynn Baker, MD, Lutherville Timonium, MD

Valerie Lynn Baker, MD, Lutherville Timonium, MD

Date: April 01, 2024

Author: ASRM


Meet Valerie L. Baker, MD, Director of the Division of Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility and the Telinde-Wallach Professor of Gynecology and Obstetrics at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. Her areas of clinical expertise include general infertility, assisted reproductive technology (in vitro fertilization) and primary ovarian insufficiency.

Dr. Baker received her medical degree from Harvard Medical School and a master's degree in public policy from the Harvard Kennedy School. She completed residency in obstetrics and gynecology and fellowship in reproductive endocrinology and infertility at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF). She then served on the faculty at UCSF, University of Washington and Stanford before joining Johns Hopkins.

Dr. Baker is past President of the Society for Assisted Reproductive Technology (SART), the current Vice President of SART Global, and is a representative for the US for the International Committee Monitoring ART. She has held other key national leadership roles, such as President of the Society for Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility and Chair of the SART Research Committee. She has been an Associate Editor for the American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology and for Human Reproduction. Dr. Baker has published more than 100 peer-reviewed research articles on topics related to fertility including stimulation protocols in assisted reproductive technology, factors affecting success with fertility treatment, and maternal and infant outcomes following ART. 

I am committed to advocating for access to fertility care and for research funding of fertility treatments and conditions that uniquely affect women.
