Research information:

Our research addresses the role of the serotonin and dopamine systems in Depression, Anxiety, and Schizophrenia.  In particular, our research focuses on genetic and environmental factors (such as early or late life stress) that determine the activity of these systems and the implications for brain function and behavior. We have identified specific gene polymorphisms, gene regulators and epigenetic alterations caused by stress that increase the risk of mental illness and affect the response to antidepressant treatments.  Our current research is to develop animal models of these genetic alterations to identify their role in susceptibility to mental illness and as models to develop new treatments to attenuate the effects of stress, anxiety, or depression.

I specialize in methods for risk assessment and risk management, with a particular focus upon human health risks. I am particularly interested in the science policy interface that mediates between the synthesis of facts and the formulation of policy defining conclusions. Methods of particular interest include uncertainty analysis, applied decision analysis, demography, and health economics. I have applied these types of tools in the context of interpreting animal bioassay evidence in the support of regulatory determinations of chemical safety, and am currently applying demography approaches to the study of summary measures of population health (such as DALYs, QALYs, PEYLLs and alike).

Khaled El Emam heads the Electronic Health Information Laboratory (EHIL) and has a research program devoted to facilitating the sharing of health information for secondary purposes while protecting the privacy of patients. In his lab, they develop technology to facilitate health data-sharing, including de-identification methods and secure computation methods to allow surveillance or analysis without compromising privacy. The different methods are suitable under different circumstances and constraints, from individual-level data release and on-going surveillance to interactive remote analysis.

Dr. El Emam’s research spans theoretical work (which consists of developing mathematical models and metrics of re-identification risk), empirical work (evaluations of our models and metrics through simulations and controlled studies), applied work (evaluations on large data sets), and knowledge translation (building software tools, instruments, and education).

Research information:

I use computational neuroscience tools to reveal the mechanisms used by the neural networks of the visual system in order to realise visual perception. This information complements that provided by animal research tools. The results of this basic research are applied towards translational research aimed at developing practical applications for medicine such as computer assisted interpretation of medical imaging results.

Research information:

Critical periods of development are marked by important physiological and neural changes. These changes shape behavior and set the stage for the vulnerability of diseases in adulthood. Exposure to stressors during these critical periods can have profound long-lasting effects on brain function and can increase the risk of psychopathology later in life. While it is possible to reduce exposure to certain environmental stressors, other stressors, such as sickness, are almost unavoidable. My research interests are to investigate the neurochemical mechanisms through which immune challenge and hormones during the prenatal and pubertal periods alter behavior. The behavioral outcomes that I am examining are social behaviors, depression and cognition. I use small rodents, such as laboratory mice and rats, to gain mechanistic insight into these questions.

I study how nonlinear systems can generate unpredictable behaviour including chaos. I also study how this behaviour is influenced by various sources of noise such as environmental fluctuations. This research is applied to the neurosciences, where I seek to understand how our senses code information about the outside physical world, and to unravel the secrets of the codes used by the brain. It is also applied to physiological variability such as that of heart rate and breathing rate in health and disease, using also nonlinear time series methods. My mathematical models make predictions about experimental outcomes in my colleagues' neurobiological and clinical laboratories. I am interested finally in plasticity and memory formation, neurotransmitter balance in mental health, the role of feedback between brain areas, and the behaviours of neurons under trauma.

I published the following work in 2009 that draws upon this topic:  État dépressif et temporalité: Contribution à la sociologie de la santé mentale (Éditions Liber). My research also focuses on the practice of sport. As such, the Montreal Canadians represent, for me, an incredible mirror of contemporary social demands. I co-edited the book  Le canadien de Montréal: Une légende repensée, (Presses de l’Université de Montréal) in 2011. It investigates the social impact of this great hockey team. I also study  how sport can constitute a tool for psychosocial development, as a part of innovative intervention practices for troubled youth.

Research information:

The typical mammalian cell expresses thousands of proteins, over a third of which are regulated by the reversible addition of a phosphate group. My laboratory studies the targeting and regulation of PP1, one of the key enzymes in the cell that removes these phosphate groups. By studying this phosphatase in living cells using cutting edge fluorescence microscopy techniques and novel methods for identifying protein complexes, we can define its roles in diverse intracellular signalling pathways and how it may be disrupted in disease states such as cancer and diabetes.

Sanni Yaya is an Associate Professor of Economics and Global Health at the School of International Development and Global Studies (SIDGS). Dr Yaya and his research team focus their work on the following topics: improving access and use of health services in low-and middle-income countries; health systems reform; sociology of health; global health financing; effects of globalization on health; economic evaluation of health interventions; and the interaction between economic development and health care. Building upon the existing literature, his research relies upon long term field observations and primary data collection experiences. Findings from his work can be integrated into future strategy development and large-scale implementation efforts undertaken by different organizations and the wider global health community to improve access to care in less developed countries (LDCs).
