Welcoming Dr. Delphine Raucher-Chéné, a recent addition to the Douglas Resarch Centre

August 3, 2023
In May, the Douglas Research Centre welcomed Dr. Delphine Raucher-Chéné to its ranks.
Dr. Raucher-Chéné completed her French MD degree in psychiatry in 2010 and has worked for ten years as a full-time clinician in an academic psychiatric department in France. She furthered her research training by undertaking an M.Sc. in neuropsychology (2012), a Ph.D. in psychology (2018), and a postdoctoral fellowship (2019-2021) at McGill/Douglas under the supervision of Dr. Martin Lepage before joining McGill University as an Assistant Professor in 2023.

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:

  1. 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;
  2. To develop a measurement-based care approach across the different stages of BD disorder, using digital technology;
  3. 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!
