Christine Guo is the Team Head at QIMR Berghofer. Her training and research experience extends from molecular biology and genetics to systems neuroscience.
Dr Guo is leading several studies using a multidisciplinary approach, combining functional MRI imaging analysis, clinical anatomy and clinical neuropsychology.
She aims to develop sensitive and reliable markers for detecting and monitoring pathology in the brain using non-invasive imaging.Clinical projects including: Multi-disciplinary imaging platform for neurodegenerative disease; Imaging markers for early diagnosis of neurodegenerative disease; Imaging markers for sub-typing major depressive disorder; Brain imaging for surgical planning in refractory epilepsy.
Basic Science projects including: The neural circuitry for emotion; The role of the cerebellum in social cognition and emotion.
