Dr Jasmin Grigg

Jasmin is a member of the Women’s Mental Health Team at MAPrc, a position she commenced in April 2013. She supports research that is examining the potential use of Selective Estrogen Receptor Modulators (SERMs) for the psychotic symptoms of schizophrenia in men.

Jasmin completed her BPsych(Hons) after which she was awarded her PhD from James Cook University, Cairns, in 2011 for her thesis on ageing and cognitive decline. She moved to Melbourne in 2011 to undertake the Re-Contact Phase of the Women’s Healthy Ageing Project (WHAP) with the Mental Health Research Institute of Victoria (MHRI), the National Ageing Research Institute (NARI), and the University of Melbourne: A longitudinal, epidemiological study measuring biomarker, physical, hormone, psychosocial, cognitive and lifestyle factors which may affect later life health and cognition.
 
Jasmin has a keen interest in the impact of hormones on cognitive functioning, and hopes to contribute to research that provides further understanding of the role of hormones on mental health, and their role in enhancing recovery from mental illness.
