Career Summary

Biography

Professor Deborah Hodgson is the Acting Pro Vice-Chancellor (Research) at The University of Newcastle, Australia. She is a Neuroimmunologist and Director of The Laboratory of Neuroimmunology. The research focus of her laboratory is the role of early life events in the programming of development. Over the past 15 years her laboratory has been addressing the impact of maternal and neonatal factors on fetal development and subsequent susceptibility to pathology in later life. Using a variety of animal models Professor Hodgson’s laboratory has demonstrated that perinatal factors drive the ontogeny of the neuroendocrine and immune systems, altering physiological processes, that then contribute to a predisposition toward pathology in later life.

Collaboration

Professor Hodgson is involved in international and national collaborations. At an international level, she is investigating the imapct of earlylife events on disease susceptibility with Professor. Chris Coe (University of Wisconsin), Professor Gayle Page (John Hopkins University, USA) Professor Yehuda Shavit (Hebrew University Israel), and Dr Mark Vickers (Liggins institute, NZ). At a national level Professor Hodgson is investigating the predisposition towards psychiatric disorders following prenatal stress in collaboration with Professor Pat Mitchie (University of Newcastle) and Dr Katerina Zavitsano (ANSTO), and programming of fertility with Associate Professor Stephen Kent (La Trobe University), Professor Vicki Clifton (Univ of Adelaide) and Drs Charles Allen (Sydney University) and Kate Loveland (Monash University).
