The impact of socioeconomic status on the risk of psychiatric traits and disorders

Dr. Brenda Cabrera-Mendoza completed her MD and PhD in the National Autonomous University of Mexico as part of the Plan of Combined Studies in Medicine (PECEM, by its acronym in Spanish) in 2020. During her PhD, under the mentorship of Dr. Humberto Nicolini, she investigated alterations in gene expression in suicides with substance use disorders. She joined the laboratory of Dr. Renato Polimanti in February 2021, where her current research studies the effects of socioeconomic status on associative mating and different psychiatric traits. Dr. Cabrera-Mendoza is part of the Women in Bioinformatics and Data Science Latinoamerica group, which organizes events to promote the research of Latin American women and is dedicated to studying underrepresented populations in her research.
