In May, the Douglas Research Centre welcomed Dr. Delphine Raucher-Chéné to its ranks.
At the Douglas, she joins the Youth Mental Health and Early Intervention theme-based group. Dr. Raucher-Chéné’s research program focuses on the development of a comprehensive understanding of the cognitive psychopathology of severe mental illness (i.e., bipolar disorder and schizophrenia-spectrum disorder), across stages, from neuroimaging to remediation.
The main objectives of this group are:
- To develop a cognitive neuroscience program to expand our current knowledge on cognitive impairments in bipolar disorder (BD) and their neuronal substrates using state-of-the-art imaging protocols;
- To develop a measurement-based care approach across the different stages of BD disorder, using digital technology;
- To implement innovative and effective psychosocial interventions for persons living with BD.
We look forward to hearing more about Dr. Raucher-Chéné’s research program at the Douglas over the coming years!
