Dr. Marie D. Werner is a board-certified Obstetrician and Gynecologist and High-complexity Clinical Laboratory Director. She completed her Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility fellowship at RMANJ in the Rutgers-Robert Wood Johnson fellowship program, where she had the privilege of training in clinical medicine, molecular genetics and embryology. Dr. Werner completed her residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology at NYU Langone Medical Center where she served as the administrative chief resident. She obtained her B.A. from Boston College in 2004 and her M.D. from New Jersey Medical School in 2008.

Having grown up in central New Jersey, Dr. Werner is excited to be moving to the Jersey Shore where she met her husband over 15 years ago. She is passionate about this field of medicine and knows personally how important individualized care is to patient success. “I have experienced both good and disappointing news with family as they pursued reproductive care and this has improved how I counsel patients.” Having trained in both the embryology and molecular genetics laboratories she is confident that RMA of NJ has the highest standards of care which offers patients the most contemporary advances in reproductive medicine.

Dr. Werner has led two large randomized control trials investigating the optimal media formulation for embryo culture and the use of next-generation sequencing for pre-implantation genetic screening of embryos. She continues to be involved in research and is interested in embryo physiology, culture, and investigating techniques to determine the pre-conception reproductive competence of embryos. Dr. Werner believes that the heart of reproductive medicine lies in the embryology laboratory, and is proud to be part of this center of excellence.

As a mother of two young children and a proud aunt of an RMA baby she values the importance of family and is excited to help others during their reproductive years. Dr. Werner understands that the journey to pregnancy is important, but she also values efficiency in reproductive management to maximize every opportunity. Dr. Werner enjoys the salt air and warm breezes of living at the beach, spending time with family and friends, and dancing.
