Bio

Camille Fung, MD is an Assistant Professor in the Division of Neonatology, Department of Pediatrics at the University of Utah, School of Medicine. In addition to caring for sick newborns who require intensive care, she has a research interest in looking at the effects of perinatal insults such as intrauterine growth restriction on neural stem cell development. Many adult onset neuropsychiatric diseases are being recognized to have a fetal origin, therefore understanding how these insults affect the molecular makeup of the brain may pave the way for future therapy.

Academic Bio

Camille Fung, MD is an Assistant Professor in the Division of Neonatology, Department of Pediatrics at the University of Utah, School of Medicine. In addition to caring for sick newborns who require intensive care, she has a research interest in looking at the effects of perinatal insults such as intrauterine growth restriction on neural stem cell development. Many adult onset neuropsychiatric diseases are being recognized to have a fetal origin, therefore understanding how these insults affect the molecular makeup of the brain may pave the way for future therapy.

Dr. Fung's research focuses on how gestational insults such as intrauterine growth restriction (IUGR) affects neural stem cell (NSC) biology to cause an altered cell type composition in the neonatal and adult brain. Using a nestin-GFP transgenic reporter mouse, they are delineating the time course of NSC proliferation and differentiation in the hippocampus after IUGR as well as investigating the epigenetic regulation of the nestin gene, a gene critical for maintaining NSC multipotentiality. Understanding the mechanism(s) behind altered NSC fate may provide a means for future therapeutic interventions to ameliorate altered cell type composition in the brain.
