  • Leanne Williams

    Leanne Williams

    Vincent V.C. Woo Professor, Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences (Major Laboratories and Clinical Translational Neurosciences Incubator) and, by courtesy, of Psychology

    Current Research and Scholarly InterestsA revolution is under way in psychiatry. We can now understand mental illness as an expression of underlying brain circuit disruptions, shaped by experience and genetics. Our lab is defining precision brain circuit types for depression, anxiety and attention deficit. We apply computational models to large amounts of brain imaging, behavior and other data. These precision brain types inform our translational intervention studies. To close the loop, field ready insights are applied in practice.

  • Sharon E. Williams PhD

    Sharon E. Williams PhD

    Clinical Professor, Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences - Child & Adolescent Psychiatry and Child Development

    Current Research and Scholarly InterestsDr. Williams’ work focuses primarily on cognitive and emotional recovery of children who have been medically compromised. With improved medical treatment and increased survival rates comes the need to better understand the challenges that patients face following a life threatening illness or injury. Dr. Williams utilizes neuropsychological assessments to understand the cognitive abilities of children who have been diagnosed with cancer, head injuries, genetic disorders and other medical conditions.

  • Alexander Wilson

    Alexander Wilson

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Radiological Sciences Laboratory

    BioDr Wilson completed a Bachelor of Science in Biomedical Science (University of Auckland, New Zealand, 2007), and a Postgraduate Diploma in Medical Sciences (UoA, 2008).

    He then changed his focus to engineering and applied mathematics, and completed a Masters of Operations Research (UoA, Faculty of Engineering, 2011). In his Master's thesis, he developed a mixed-integer linear formulation for determining optimal electricity distribution tariffs under a range of power generation conditions.

    Dr Wilson then switched back his focused to the Medical Sciences and completed a PhD in Bioengineering with a joint appointment in the Department of Physiology and the Auckland Bioengineering Institute. His Doctoral thesis (2018) focused on the physiology and biomechanics of cardiac remodeling underpinning heart failure.

    During his first Postdoctoral position (University of South Florida Heart Institute, 2018-2019), Dr Wilson developed nanoparticle therapies for myocardial ischemia-reperfusion injury, as well as anti-thrombin nanoparticles to reduce thrombus formation while limiting bleeding risk.

    Dr Wilson is currently a member of the Cardiac MRI Research Group at Stanford University (PI: Professor Daniel Ennis), and works on a range of projects including (i) using tissue clearing techniques to understand the fundamental branching structure of the myocardium (ii) developing new diffusion tensor MRI reconstruction techniques for extracting cardiac microstructure and pathology (iii) using MRI and histology to understand the myocardial structural and functional improvements brought about by ACE inhibitor treatment.
