The ultimate goal Dr. Ghasemlou’s research lab is to help identify new non-opioid therapeutic targets to reduce pain and help improve the lives of those living with pain. Projects in the lab are supported by CIHR and the SPOR Chronic Pain Network, NSERC, the Multiple Sclerosis Society of Canada, the Canadian Pain Society, and the Craig H. Neilsen Foundation, among others.
Etienne Vachon-Presseau, PhD
Etienne is Assistant Professor (joint) in the Faculty of Dentistry and the Department of anesthesiology at McGill University. He has dedicated the last 10 years of his research to unraveling the brain mechanisms regulating chronic pain. He completed his PhD degree in psychology under the supervision of Pierre Rainville at l’Université de Montréal (2006-2014) where he studied the impact of stress hormones on the brain in chronic back pain patients. He went on to conduct a post-doctoral fellowship under the supervision of Vania Apkarian at Northwestern University (2013-present) where he studied the brain properties predicting the development of chronic back pain and the response to treatment in the settings of randomized controlled trials. He is currently implementing a research agenda oriented towards combining brain imaging techniques with machine learning to predict health outcomes.
