    Brisa S Fernandes

    I am a psychiatrist and scientist. My main research field focuses on the discovery and application of biomarkers in severe mental illnesses, namely bipolar disorder, major depressive disorder, and schizophrenia. I started in this field in 2008 during my psychiatric training and in 2009 published what is perhaps the first proposal of employment of blood biomarkers as an adjunctive tool for the differential diagnosis of bipolar and unipolar depression. My masters degree investigated and proposed the protein brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) as a biomarker of disease activity in bipolar disorder, showing it decreased in mania and depression, reflecting severity of the mood states, and normal in euthymia. It was awarded the Samuel Gershon Award for Junior Investigators by The International Society for Bipolar Disorders (ISBD) in 2010, and the article published is on the top 1% most cited papers in Psychiatry and Psychology according to Web of Science Indicators. Subsequently, in order to obtain deeper knowledge in neuroscience, I enroled for a doctorate in Biochemistry at the Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul (UFRGS), one of the leading universities in Brazil. My Ph.D. thesis analyzed, among other points, the role of peripheral BDNF as a biomarker across the schizoaffective spectrum and establish that BDNF is a potential biomarker of disease activity for the acute phases of bipolar disorder and major depressive disorder. My thesis originated two papers that were published in Molecular Psychiatry, the leading journal in my field, in 2013 and 2014. Presently, I am a post-doctoral research fellow in Australia at Deakin University, School of Medicine. I graduated in Medicine in 2002 and specialized in Internal Medicine and Psychiatry in 2005 and 2009, respectively. During my graduation years, I acquired extensive experience in Epidemiology, and my residency training in Internal Medicine provided me a deep understanding of clinical tests and its applications. Conjointly, my diverse but complementary skills provide with a unique view for the discovery and validation of biomarkers in Psychiatry. Contact: brisasf@gmail.com or brisasf@pq.cnpq.br.
