Dr Karen Gibson is a Senior Lecturer in Physiology in the School of Medical Sciences, Faculty of Medicine and Health, UNSW.

Qualifications: MB BS, BMedSc, PhD, GCULT, UNSW

Education Focussed Academic.

Teaching: Phase 1 Convenor for BMed/MD program. Course convenor of PHSL3221 Endocrine, Reproductive and Developmental Physiology. I teach physiology to both medical and science students. My particular areas of expertise are renal physiology, respiratory physiology, fetal physiology, the ECG, and reproductive physiology.

Research Interests: Recent epidemiological evidence indicates that the quality of life in utero influences the development of adult disease eg hypertension, cardiovascular disease and diabetes. My research is concerned with renal development, cardiovascular development and the renin angiotensin system. I am particularly interested in the interaction between programming and lifestyle factors in the development of hypertension and renal disease.

Broad Research Areas: Physiology, Renal Disease

Specific Research Keywords: Fetal Development, Cardiovascular Development, Renal Disease, Hypertension, Renin-angiotensin system

Society Memberships: Australian Physiological Society, American Physiology Society, Perinatal Society of Australia and New Zealand
