Title: Next Two Fellows Selected for the MGH T32 Program

We are pleased to announce the selection of our next two new fellows for the MGH Global Psychiatric Clinical Research Training Program (T32)!

Christine Cooper-Vince, PhD is a current fellow in the Global Division working closely with Drs. Bangsberg and Tsai at Mbarara University of Science and Technology in Uganda. Her research encompasses the investigation of parental and structural factors in the development of childhood psychopathology, as well as tele methods for expanding access to mental health care in low-resource settings. As a global psychiatry fellow, she aims to further investigate youth psychopathology in the context of familial medical and mental illness to inform the development of novel community-based mental health interventions in Mbarara, Uganda.

Dr. Cooper-Vince completed her doctorate in Clinical Psychology at Boston University and her predoctoral internship at Massachusetts General Hospital/Harvard Medical School in the Cognitive Behavioral Therapy training track.

Kristina Korte, PhD is currently a T32 fellow at the Medical University of South Carolina, focusing on addiction and co-occurring PTSD. Dr. Korte’s research focuses on the identification of risk and resiliency factors associated with anxiety and traumatic stress disorders, developing preventative interventions for subclinical symptoms of anxiety and commonly co-occurring symptoms (e.g., substance misuse), and developing novel strategies to increase awareness of mental health disorders and to enhance treatment seeking behaviors. As a global psychiatry fellow, she aims to apply what has been learned from research on the dissemination of evidence-based treatments to inform effectiveness research in low-income settings.

Dr. Korte received her doctorate in Clinical Psychology from Florida State University and completed her predoctoral internship in the Charleston Consortium Clinical Psychology Internship Training Program at the Medical University of South Carolina.
