Dr. Dunlop received her PhD in Medical Science in 2018 at the University of Toronto, Institute of Medical Science, as a CIHR Vanier Scholar. She also completed a postdoctoral fellowship in neuroscience as a CIHR Banting Fellow in the Department of Psychiatry at Weill Cornell Medicine in 2021. Dr. Dunlop uses cognitive science, human structural and functional neuroimaging, and non-invasive brain stimulation (e.g., transcranial magnetic stimulation) to understand the biological causes of inter-individual variability in behaviour and symptomatology, treatment response, and predictors of symptom improvement.
Katie received her MSc in Neuroscience from the University of Ottawa, where she studied neurobiological correlates of suicide in treatment-resistant depression. Prior to joining the ASR, Katie completed a specialized internship at the Psychiatry Neuroimaging Laboratory of Harvard Medical School, to acquire novel expertise in neuroimaging data analysis. At the Centre for Depression and Suicide Studies, Katie coordinates clinical trials examining new treatments for depression.
Kristen is currently pursuing her Honours Bachelor of Science at the University of Toronto, specializing in Mental Health Studies. Since 2019, she has been involved in several ongoing research studies in the ASR Program. Kristen is passionate about mental health advocacy outside of ASR, and hopes to pursue further studies and a career in clinical psychology focusing on trauma therapy
Jennifer completed her Honours Bachelor of Integrated Science at McMaster University with a specialization in Psychology, Neuroscience and Behaviour. She is currently a MSc student with the Institute of Medical Science at the University of Toronto and her project uses neuroimaging to examine potential biomarkers associated with suicide risk and pain perception. Jennifer is passionate about science communication, mental health advocacy and hopes to help bridge the gap between research and patient outcomes in the clinic in the future.
Yasmine Gray is a Research Coordinator in the ASR Program. She is involved in the Family/Friends of Individuals at Risk of Suicide Training (FIRST) study. Yasmine has a Master's degree in Critical Disability Studies, with expertise in Mad Studies, Critical Suicidology and Black Disability Studies.
Garima is currently pursuing her Bachelor of Science at the University of Toronto, specializing in Neuroscience and Molecular Biology. As a research student, she is working on projects focused on the neural basis of suicide, and knowledge translation. Garima's ultimate goal is to continue to push the boundaries of scientific discovery in the field of neuropsychiatry, and contribute to the development of new treatments that can improve the quality of life.
Sarina is currently pursuing her Honours Bachelor of Science at Queen’s University, majoring in Psychology. She is involved in studies in the ASR program investigating the biomarkers and neural networks that underlie suicide risk. Sarina is passionate about mental health advocacy and suicide prevention and hopes to pursue a career in clinical psychology in the future.
