Dr Célia Fourrier is a postdoctoral research officer in the Discipline of Psychiatry, School of Medicine, at the University of Adelaide.
She completed her PhD in Bordeaux, France, where she investigated the role of neuroinflammation in emotional and cognitive alterations associated with obesity. She showed that inflammation, and particularly TNF-α, could be an important target in the treatment of mood disorders in obese individuals (Fourrier et al, 2018; Fernandez de Cossio et al, 2018). In addition, she investigated the effect of nutritional interventions with specific nutrients (i.e. n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids and antioxidants) on metabolic, mood and cognitive alterations in inflammatory conditions (Larrieu et al, 2014) and on the regulation of inflammatory processes in the brain (Fourrier et al. 2017).
Now, her research activities in the Discipline of Psychiatry encompass a new approach to personalised psychiatry with a focus on the role of the immune system in psychiatric disorders. She coordinates a clinical trial that investigates the efficacy of using an antidepressant augmented with an anti-inflammatory medication in the treatment of major depressive disorder.
