Katherine F. Campbell, Ph.D.

Post-Doctoral Fellow


Dr. Katherine F. Campbell joined the O’Shea Lab as a postdoctoral fellow in September of 2018. She has an undergraduate degree in physics from Reed College, a masters in pharmacology from SUNY Upstate Medical University, and, in 2013, she completed her PhD at the University of Michigan, researching the role of regional ion channel heterogeneities in arrhythmogenesis and developing novel cardiac culturing techniques. During her postdoctoral training with Drs. Todd Herron and José Jalife she developed a 3D stem cell derived cardiomyocyte model to investigate the mechanisms of inherited cardiomyopathies. During this time, Dr. Cambell participated in a collaboration with Dr. O’Shea researching the effects of a bipolar mutation on cardiac function. Upon joining the O’Shea lab, she is continuing her involvement in the bipolar project working to differentiate patient-specific glutamatergic neurons to study the electrophysiological and molecular mechanisms of bipolar disorder.
