She directed and provided audiology services for over 20 years in Canada and the United States but now focuses primarily on both basic and clinical research. For over 20 years, she has also taught audiology to faculty, residents, and medical students in otolaryngology, pediatrics, neurology, primary care, neonatology, and surgery. She is the author of Essential Audiology for Physicians and numerous book chapters and articles. She currently serves on the American Academy of Audiology Board of Directors. She consults in audiology clinical management, clinical trials, and as an expert witness. Dr. Campbell is also a prolific researcher, publishing numerous articles on both basic science and clinical topics in various areas of auditory science and auditory disorders. She is a noted lecturer both nationally and internationally focusing on audiologic assessment of auditory disorders, and particularly ototoxicity, noise-induced hearing loss and otoprotective agents. She has received an NIH Clinical Investigator Development Award, the James A. Shannon Director¿s Award from NIH for her research in ototoxicity, a Special Presidential Citation from the American Academy of Audiology for her work in Professional Practice Standards, has been named an ASHA Fellow and is in Who¿s Who in America. Dr. Campbell also holds several patents for otoprotective agents and is planning clinical trials.
