Jacqueline Phillips is Professor of Neurophysiology and the current Deputy Chair of the Macquarie University Academic Senate. Professor Phillips first trained as a veterinarian (University of Sydney) and then moved into research, undertaking her PhD at the Australian National University (John Curtin School of Medical Research), a post-doctoral position at the University of Auckland and subsequent academic appointment at Murdoch University in Perth WA, which she held until 2009 when she moved to Macquarie.

Jacqueline’s research is focussed on the drivers of high blood pressure in chronic kidney disease, using a rodent model of polycystic kidney disease (PKD) as the foundation for her studies.  With the ultimate goal of finding targeted therapeutics to reduce blood pressure and decrease the risk of cardiovascular mortality in this patient cohort, her work uses multidisciplinary techniques to assess structure and function of the vasculature system and  neurohormonal control of the cardiovascular system (in both acute and chronic studies). More recently she has begun cell based studies to understand the molecular impact of genes that cause PKD.
