Congratulations to Dr. Kam Keramatian, Clinical Assistant Professor and consultant psychiatrist with the UBC Mood Disorders Centre, who has received the 2021 VCHRI Mentored Clinician Scientist Investigator Award!
The VCHRI Mentored Clinician Scientist Investigator Award is a salary award that supports outstanding and promising clinician investigators as they build their early research careers. This award will enable Dr. Keramatian to make inroads into a clinically significant area focused on early identification strategies to reduce undiagnosed bipolar disorder and its serious medical and psychosocial consequences. Under the mentorship of Dr. Lakshmi Yatham, Dr. Keramatian will pursue a project that will aim to develop and assess a novel manual-based group psychoeducational intervention — delivered in a telehealth format — designed for individuals at high risk for bipolar disorder.
Please join us in congratulating Dr. Keramatian on this significant achievement!
