Dr Sara Tremblay

Sara Tremblay is a scientist at the Royal’s Institute of Mental Health Research in Canada and an assistant professor at the Université du Québec en Outaouais. She obtained her Ph.D. in Neuropsychology in 2015 at Université de Montréal, where her research explored for biomarkers of sport concussions using neuromodulation and neuroimaging. She completed postdoctoral fellowships at University College London (UK) under the mentorship of Prof. John Rothwell and at the Center for Mental Health and Addiction (Canada), under the mentorship of Dr. Jeff Daskalakis. She is currently developing a translational neuromodulation research program that involves research development of methods and clinical applications for therapeutic interventions. Specifically, she uses multimodal measures, such as combined transcranial magnetic stimulation and electroencephalography (TMS-EEG) and positron emission tomography (PET), to further our understanding of the neural mechanisms of action of neuromodulation. She is also using these tools to optimize neuromodulation treatments for mental health disorders and develop biomarkers of response to treatment.

Dr Sara Tremblay will be speaking at the Brainbox Initiative Conference 2020, with a talk entitled Molecular brain imaging to study the neural mechanisms of theta burst stimulation.
