Sinead Marie Campos, MS

T35 Research Fellow

Department of Medicine, Division of Nephrology


Ms. Campos is in her second year of medical school. She received a Bachelor of Science degree in psychology (major) with a chemistry minor (University of Illinois Urbana), as well as a master’s degree in medical physiology (Case Western Reserve University). Her mentor is Pamela Martyn-Nemeth, PhD, RN, FAHA, FAAN, and her research project, “The Experiences of Black/African American Adults with Type 1 Diabetes (T1D),” included the following key findings: high levels of diabetes distress were significantly associated with increased levels of fear of hypoglycemia (p < 0.001); younger participants reported higher levels of diabetes distress; high levels of perceived ethnic discrimination were significantly associated with higher levels of diabetes distress (r = 0.903, p <0.001); and qualitative themes identified: love and hate relationship with technology, education, and accessibility.

Upon completing her fellowship, Ms. Campos presented her research at the November 2023 UIC College of Medicine Research Day. She is currently a 2024 UIC James Scholar, an Independent Study Program where she continues working alongside her mentor.
