Reproductive endocrinology and infertility is an incredibly challenging and fulfilling field that I have not grown tired of in 20-plus years of practice. I am very lucky that each day I still wake up eager to go to work. I have spent my entire adult life in the field of medicine. Even before I was old enough for medical school, I worked as a nursing assistant in such areas as the intensive care unit, burn unit and emergency department.
One of the main reasons that I love this work actually happened the morning that I wrote this — that day, like many days, I got to hold a beautiful three-month-old baby, which came into the world with a little help from the Duke Fertility Center.

Dr. Price is a specialist infertility doctor who’s involved in both clinical and basic science research. The main focus of the basic science molecular endocrinology laboratory is the study of novel sex steroid receptors. Currently, the work focuses on novel progesterone receptors that may act on the cell membrane. This new mechanism of treatment could have an impact on many physiological processes varying from sperm function to the growth of breast cancers.
