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

My research interest lies in the effects of intrauterine growth restriction (IUGR) on organ development. IUGR is an in utero diagnosis that carries significant prenatal and postnatal morbidities and mortality. IUGR offspring are at increased risks for multiple disorders affecting multiple organs after birth including early onset metabolic syndrome, neurodevelopmental/neuropsychiatric diseases, and increased risk for infections. In the last 7-1/2 years, my research has included the examination of the effects of IUGR on hippocampal neural progenitor cell development as it pertains to hippocampal formation in the brain, ileal development as it pertains to the small intestines’ increased risk for necrotizing enterocolitis, and most recently in placental development to understand the role a placenta plays in contributing to IUGR. By interrogating mechanisms that lead to these disorders, we hope to design therapy aimed at ameliorating these negative outcomes.
