Associate Professor Rebecca Campbell – Shedding light on the role of the brain in polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS)
Rebecca Campbell, PhD is an Associate Professor in the Department of Physiology, the Deputy Director of the Centre for Neuroendocrinology, and the Associate Dean of Research within the Otago School of Biomedical Sciences.
She received her PhD from Oregon Health and Science University in 2002, joined the Centre for Neuroendocrinology as a Postdoctoral Fellow and then established her own independent research group in 2009.
Her research focuses on defining and understanding the neuronal network that regulates fertility using a wide range of anatomical and functional neuroscience tools in pre-clinical transgenic mouse models. She is particularly focused on investigating how androgen excess impacts the female brain in order to better understand the development and pathophysiology of polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS).
Her work has identified specific brain wiring defects that may contribute to this common infertility disorder and serve as future therapeutic targets.
