Claiton H. D. Bau is Professor of Genetics at the Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Sul (UFRGS), in Porto Alegre - Brazil. He is the principal investigator of the adultsection of the ADHD Outpatient Program (ProDAH) at the Hospital de Clínicas de Porto Alegre. Professor Claiton's research focuses on developing and/or implementing a wide range of approaches to enhance the knowledge on the clinical, genetic, pharmacogenetic, neuroimaging and neuropsychological aspects of ADHD in adults. He is also interested in the phenotypic characterization and genetic variation associated to substance use disorders and related psychiatric disorders.
Eugenio Horacio Grevet is Professor at the Department of Psychiatry at Eugenio Horacio Grevetthe Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Sul (UFRGS) in Porto Alegre and he also has experience as a clinical psychiatrist. He has developed works related to the cognitive effects of catecholamine precursor restriction on attention, mood and memory on adult healthy volunteers during his master in neurochemistry until 2000. In 2001, together with Prof. Claiton H. D. Bau, Prof. Paulo Belmonte-de-Abreu and Dr. Carlos A. I. Salgado, started the first ADHD Outpatient Program (ProDAH) for adults in Brazil, which is associated to the major teaching hospital of UFRGS. His research interest involves different aspects of the clinical heterogeneity of ADHD in adults, including the effects of comorbidities, personality profiles and ADHD subtypes.
I am a pharmacist and I am currently a master's degree student in the graduate program in genetics and molecular biology (PPGBM) at the Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Sul (UFRGS). My research is focused on investigating the role of genes related to the stress system, more specifically the ones involved in the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis on ADHD and substance use disorders. Considering that, in psychiatric genetics, the HPA axis plays an important role in regulating central nervous system neurotransmitter, including behavior, and the study of gene-gene interactions is an important issue in this sense, we use analyses of evidence-based hypotheses to search for these possible interactions between candidate genes in such mental disorders.
I have joined the ADHD Outpatient Program (ProDAH) research team in 2012, when I started my master's studies at the Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Sul in Porto Alegre – Brazil. I am a clinical psychiatrist and my research involves evaluating reliability and validity aspects of the DSM-5 diagnostic criteria for ADHD in adults. I am currently studying the impact of third party information in the diagnosis of ADHD in adults.
I am a clinical psychologist and PhD student at the Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Sul (UFRGS; Porto Alegre/Brazil), working in the ADHD Outpatient Program (ProDAH), which is associated to the university teaching hospital. My research interests involve the characterization of the neuropsychological profile of adults with ADHD. I am currently working on obtaining follow-up data from adults with ADHD that were assessed by the research group seven years ago.
I am graduated in biomedical sciences (2011) and I obtained a master's degree in the graduate program in genetics and molecular biology (PPGBM) at the Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Sul - RS - Brazil (2013). In 2013 I also stared my PhD project at PPGBM. My research is focused in hypothesis-driven gene-gene interactions among genes involved in the negative feedback of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis and their impact on ADHD and related comorbidities, especially substance use disorders. Additionally, I am exploring evidence-based interactions between HPA axis genes and genes related to neurotransmission on ADHD.
I am a clinical psychiatrist and I am part of the ADHD Outpatient Program (ProDAH) research team. I obtained my medical and master's degree from the Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Sul (UFRGS), in Porto Alegre - Brazil. My main research interest involves ADHD and other Disruptive Behaviour Disorders in adults, as well as the interplay between these disorders and their consequences in adulthood.
I am a clinical psychiatrist and I am interest in better understanding ADHD phenotype in adults, mainly focused on issues related to the diagnosis and course of the disorder. The focus of my research has been ADHD persistence and remission in adults diagnosed at adulthood. For the last few years, our research group has implemented a task-force to obtain follow-up data from the subjects of our original sample, that started baseline assessment in 2003 and follow-up assessment in 2010. I have been involved in coordinating, collecting and analyzing these 7-year follow-up data in regards to the persistence of ADHD symptoms and comorbidity outcomes.
I am a clinical psychiatrist and I have recently finished my PhD in Psychiatry (2014) at the Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Sul in Porto Alegre/RS, Brazil. My research is mainly focused on the therapeutic response to methylphenidate of patients with persistent ADHD (i.e. adults with ADHD). I am also in charge of the pharmacogenetics database of our local sample
I obtained my PhD in Genetics and Molecular Biology (2011) from the Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Sul (UFRGS), Porto Alegre/Brazil, and worked for one year as a post doctoral researcher at the Brazilian Institute of Developmental Psychiatry for Children and Adolescents (2012). During my PhD, I focused on the pharmacogenetics of response to methylphenidate in adults with ADHD. Currently, I am working as an assistant professor at the Postgraduate Program in Biotechnology, Centro Universitário UNIVATES, Lajeado/Brazil, and starting a collaborative research on genetics of ADHD at the ADHD Outpatient Program (ProDAH) of UFRGS.
I am a clinical psychologist and I am currently also working as a postdoc at the Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Sul (UFRGS), in Porto Alegre/Brazil. I have recently finished my PhD (2013), which was mainly focused on neuropsychological deficits in adults with ADHD and the effects of comorbidities. I am the coordinator of the neuropsychological research team of the adult section of the ADHD Outpatient Program, associated to the major teaching hospital of UFRGS.
Professor Paulo S. Belmonte-de-Abreu is Associate Professor of Psychiatry at the Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Sul (UFRGS), in Porto Alegre. He is one of the pioneers of the adult ADHD research team, focusing on clinical phenotypes, molecular biology and neuroimaging in Adult ADHD. In addition to his work and interest in ADHD, most of his research extended to psychiatric phenotypes, neuroimaging, biochemistry and new treatments in schizophrenia and related disorders.
I am a senior psychiatrist specilized in Substance Abuse/Dependence at the Universidade Federal de São Paulo (UNIFESP). I am currently working as a clinical advisor at ProDAH - Program of Atention Deficit/Hyperactivitivy of Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Sul (UFRGS). My research is focused on correlations of Temperament and Character and ADHD and comorbidities.
