PATRICIA PELUFO SILVEIRA

CANADA
MD, MSc, PhD

Dr Silveira is a Primary Investigator at the Ludmer Centre for Neuroinformatics & Mental Health, based at the Douglas Research Centre, and affiliated with the Department of Psychiatry at McGill University.

A pediatrician and neuroscientist, Dr Silveira’s research focuses on how perinatal and early-childhood environments interact with individual differences in biological processes, shaping and modulating both health and disease risk across the lifespan, into old age. Her aim is to identify how gene networks interact with environmental adversities early in life, modifying endophenotypes (impulsivity, sensitivity to reward, executive function, food choices) that ultimately affect healthy growth and neurodevelopment, increasing an individual’s risk for developing chronic metabolic diseases and psychopathologies across their lifespan.
