Psychology, medical genetics, imaging and electrophysiology combine to make precision child psychiatry a reality at Centre Hospitalier Universitaire Sainte-Justine.

Experts in different neurological disciplines at CHU Sainte-Justine Azrieli Research Centre are joining forces through Centre IMAGINE, a new center for multimodal pediatric brain assessment, to explore the genetic, environmental and social determinants of mental health and develop interventions to alter the developmental trajectories of predisposed children and teenagers.Taken together, the work of clinical psychologist Patricia Conrod, medical geneticist, Sébastien Jacquemont, and computational neuroscientist, Guillaume Dumas, illustrates this new paradigm of precision psychiatry.

“Our institution is focused on understanding brain development and psychosocial health, along with deep biomedical expertise in related conditions,” says Conrod. “Together, we bring real strengths in understanding the evolution of mental health and psychosocial functioning.”
