Bio

Dr Yann Quidé is an early-carrer postdoctoral researcher in the School of Psychiatry UNSW Sydney, and affiliated scientist at Neuroscience Research Australia (NeuRA). He has a particular interest in identifying the neurobiological underpinnings of stress and trauma in relation to psychiatric conditions. His present research interests are two-fold:
First, he is interested in the investigation of the long-term neurobiological effects of childhood trauma exposure on the risk of developing schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. In particular, he studies the interacting effects of childhood trauma exposure with genetics, epigenetics (methylation), neuroendocrine (cortisol) and inflammatory (cytokines) markers to effect brain structure and function, and neuropsychological performance.
Second, he is interested in the identification of the early neurobiological (neuroendocrine, neuroimaging) and neuropsychological changes occurring in the aftermath of sexual assault in females, and how these changes lead to the development of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
