GRAHAM LITTLE, PHD
Postdoctoral Fellow (co-direction with Pr Maxime Descoteaux), Fall - 2021
Dr. Graham Little is a computer scientist with an expertise in medical image analysis. He holds a BSc in Computer Science and Mathematics from Acadia University (Wolfville, NS) and a PhD in Biomedical Engineering from University of Alberta (Edmonton, AB). In the Tetreault lab, Dr. Little is tasked with developing state of the art analysis pipelines for diffusion MRI so that advanced computational techniques can be leveraged to better understand the biological mechanisms of chronic pain. He will first apply these pipelines on a vast longitunal study on subacute low back pain patients available from the Open Pain repository.
MONICA SEAN, MSC
PhD student, Winter - 2021
Monica obtained a bachelor’s degree in Pharmacology and a master’s degree in Physiology at the Université de Sherbrooke. During her master, her research project focuses on endogenous pain modulation mechanisms as a predictors of treatment’s efficacy in chronic pain patients. She is now pursuing her PhD in Radiation Sciences and Biomedical Imaging in Pr Pascal Tétreault’s laboratory, in codirection with Pr Guillaume Léonard. She is particularly interested in the use of a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to better understand treatment response in patients with chronic low back pain.
MAHSA VAFAIE, BSC
MSc student, Winter - 2022
Mahsa is a graduate student at the University of Sherbrooke. During her bachelor's degree in computer engineering at the University of Isfahan in Iran, she focused on fMRI data and applied machine learning techniques and modeling data using graph theory methods. She is now pursuing her master's in Radiation Sciences and Biomedical Imaging under the supervision of Pr. Tétreault. Her main project is to use machine learning techniques to identify biomarkers of treatment response in chronic low back pain.
INÈS CHAREF, BSC
MSc student, Summer - 2022
Inès obtained bachelor’s degree in Pharmacology at the University of Clermont Ferrand, in France. During her studies, she conducted experiments to find out whether the use of morphine alters the transcription of certain proteins in the spinal cord. For her master degree in the Pr Tétreault lab team, she will looks towards gaining knowledge about pain and chronic pain.
PAUL BAUTIN, ING.
MSc student, Fall - 2022
Paul is a graduate student at the University of Sherbrooke. He holds a bachelor's degree in physics engineering with an orientation in Biomedical Eng. from Polytechnique Montreal. During his bachelor's degree he focused on the processing and analysis of spinal cord MRI data. He is now pursuing his master's in Radiation Sciences and Biomedical Imaging under the supervision of Pr. Tétreault. His main project is to use state of the art diffusion MRI pipelines to better understand chronic pain predisposition and response to treatment.
BSc student, Winter - 2022
Marc-Antoine is an undergraduate pharmacology student at the Université de Sherbrooke. His studies allowed Marc-Antoine to develop an interest in neurosciences and now incite him to grow his knowledge of the field. This internship will help him earn experience, through preclinical research, on the role of the brain in chronic pain.
MARYLIE MARTEL, PHD
Research staff (part time)
After completing a degree in Pharmacology at the Université de Sherbrooke in 2013, Marylie has undertaken postgraduate studies in the laboratory of Professor Guillaume Léonard (Master), in co-direction with Pre Nathaly Gaudreault (PhD). Her research interests had focus on the interaction between pain and the motor system, as well as understanding the neurophysiological mechanisms involved in pain and the chronicization of pain. In order to meet these research objectives, she had use innovative neurostimulation and neuroimaging techniques.
