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.

Research information:

I am interested in children's cognitive development. More specifically, I am researching the development of future thinking and planning skills, and children's understanding of their own and others' minds ("theory of mind") - particularly as this last skill applies to explaining and making sense of their own and others' actions as a function of mental states (e.g., beliefs, desires, and intentions).

Research information:

In the Spring of 2015 I successfully defended and submitted my PhD thesis. My research analyses representations of Canadian, American and Australian military personnel, police and cadets involved in military 'sex scandals'. I explore the longstanding culture of misogyny, racism, homophobia and ableism in the Canadian, U.S. and Australian Armed Forces, with a focus on the ways 'militarized masculinity' is guided by these violent structures and fundamental to the military's creation of soldiers. My dissertation explores the ways blame is individualised in cases of sexual and racist violence involving military personel, while military culture and militarized masculinity are commonly celebrated without regard for how they are fundamentally violent.

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.

Research information:

Dr. Lapierre’s research focuses mainly on two topics: Work-family conflict and leader-follower relationships. Work-family conflict refers to the incompatibility between one’s work and family obligations, which is related to a host of problems, such as reduced employee health, satisfaction at work and at home, and job performance, as well as increased absenteeism and intentions to quit their job. Dr. Lapierre’s research has revealed that the organization, the immediate manager, the employee, and the employee’s family can each play a significant role in reducing the employee’s work-family conflict. His work has outlined specific actions that each party can take to achieve this goal. In his work on leader-follower relationships, Dr. Lapierre’s gives particular attention to the influence that followers can have on their leaders. A leader cannot exist without at least one follower, implying that employees’ acts of followership would have some influence on the leadership displayed by their superiors. The critical question is: What is effective followership? Dr. Lapierre has begun working on identifying different followership styles among employees and how these styles could impact their managers’ leadership behaviors, such as being more versus less directive, participative, supportive, and inspirational. This research will guide current and future employees on the role they can play in gaining the leadership they need from their superiors. Dr. Lapierre’s research has been published in various journals, such as the Journal of Management, Personnel Psychology, the Journal of Occupational Health Psychology, and the Journal of Vocational Behavior. He was made a Telfer Research Fellow in recognition of his scholarly contributions.

For several years I have been conducting research in the field of psychosocial oncology, that is the study of how cancer affects patients and their loved ones. With a growing number of cancer survivors, attention has focused on quality of life post treatment issues. I study commonly encountered difficulties among cancer survivors such as fear of cancer recurrence, stigma, impaired sexuality, and family adjustment. Our ultimate goal is to develop evidence-based intervention for cancer survivors who experience these difficulties.
