Overview

My research has focused on identifying molecular changes following stressful and traumatic challenges in animal models to understand the underlying biological mechanisms of stress-related disorders. I am extremely interested in furthering my research in investigating the cognitive, behavioural, and emotional processes in disorders of the nervous system, mood disorders, and during aging in order to develop biomarkers which will improve diagnostics and treatment plans for patients affected by these conditions.

  • Spiers, Jereme, Chen, Hsiao-Jou Cortina, Cuffe, James, Sernia, Conrad and Lavidis, Nickolas (2015). Restraint stress induces distinct changes in redox status within the hippocampus and striatum accompanied by an up-regulation of protective antioxidant genes.
