Biographical details

Professor Katharine (Kate) Steinbeck is an endocrinologist and adolescent medicine physician. She is the inaugural Medical Foundation Chair in Adolescent Medicine at the University of Sydney, which is Australia’s first University Chair in Adolescent Medicine established in 2010 in recognition of the need for a focused effort to address the health problems faced by adolescents including the large burden of chronic illness. Trained in endocrinology, Professor Steinbeck developed a dual career pathway that included adolescent medicine and has extensive experience in managing adolescents and young adults with disorders of puberty and chronic conditions including diabetes and obesity, and long term endocrine effects in childhood cancer survivors. She leads a research team to address gaps in evidence in the field, and is working to integrate research and teaching, to promote youth health issues and educate and support doctors who treat young people. She actively advocates for youth by engaging with teacher groups, NGOs, professional organisations and the media. She notes, “adolescence is a challenging specialty area in medicine, which doesn’t fit neatly into paediatrics and child health, or adult medicine. It is a time when health trajectories are established for life, but where medical needs are poorly understood. Adolescents’ propensity for risk behaviours against a background of a still-developing brain, demands that we develop better ways of creating safe environments while supporting emerging autonomy”. Professor Steinbeck’s research has made major contributions to clinical practice and policy. She is Member of the Research Committee of the American Society of Adolescent Medicine, Co-Chair of the Lifespan Theme at the University of Sydney, Member of the National Youth Information Advisory Group (AIHW), and Chair of the RACP Specialist Advisory Committee for Adolescent and Young Adult Medicine.

Research interests

"Our research examines adolescent health trajectories and how we can intervene to improve the health of this group and influence policies around adolescent wellbeing", says Professor Steinbeck. Current research interests include:

§ Puberty hormones and their effects on health and wellbeing in adolescence: via the foundational ARCHER study, an intensive, longitudinal study based in rural NSW, of puberty hormone change and its impact on physical, mental and psychosocial wellbeing in early adolescence. The study will extend into later adolescence and aims to generate data to help develop strategies for protecting the health and wellbeing of adolescents.

§ Defining optimal methodologies in adolescent research: including the use of social media, to assist with engagement and retention in research studies.

§ Chronic illness in adolescence: includes novel studies on the transition from paediatric to adult care, and the management of complex chronic illness.

§ Overweight and obesity in adolescents and young adults.

To date her research has had a strong impact. Transition studies have informed the development of models of care in adult spina bifida, and studies identifying an increased risk of irradiation-induced thyroid cancer in adolescent and young adult survivors of childhood cancer have altered monitoring protocols and intubation practices during surgery. Research on the metabolic syndrome, insulin resistance and diabetes in long-term survivors of cancer helped develop evidence-based surveillance. A validated, developmentally-specific care plan to identify psychosocial needs of hospitalised youth has been adopted by a number of health districts in Australia and overseas.
