Heather Bradshaw, Ph.D., is an Associate Professor in the Department of Psychological & Brain Sciences at Indiana University, where she directs the Bradshaw Lab of Lipid Neuroscience. Dr. Bradshaw has also collaborated with the Kinsey Institute on the research she directs into endogenous cannabinoid lipid signaling and its relation to female reproductive function.
Her studies in this field focus upon the relationship of endogenous cannabinoids and female reproductive neurophysiology.
Currently Dr. Bradshaw’s research focus is aimed at lipid signaling at transient receptor potential (TRP) channels and orphan G-protein coupled receptors in the central nervous system and uterus. She is examining disease models of endometriosis, chronic pain, and neuroinflammation and their link to aberrant lipid signaling in the ECS and related mediators. Dr. Bradshaw holds B.S. and Ph.D. degrees from Florida State University. She has published over sixty journal articles and frequently lectures at universities around the world.
