J. Bronte Emery, BA
Biography: J. Bronte Emery is a Research Assistant at the Syracuse CIH. She moved to Syracuse in 2013 after graduating Cum Laude from Salem College in Winston-Salem, NC with a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology. Throughout her academic career she focused her studies on military psychology, specifically PTSD and military sexual trauma. Bronte currently works on two projects for CIH: an NIH funded project examining the efficacy of an internet-based therapy for Veterans experiencing PTSD and alcohol/substance use, and a medication trial working with the Department of Defense and Walter Reed National Military Hospital investigating a new medication to treat PTSD in OEF/OIF/OND era Veterans.
Bronte plans on continuing her career in the field of mental health by applying to a graduate school program focused in Social Psychology. Her research interests focus on working with marginalized groups within the Veteran community, i.e. female Veterans, Veterans of Color and Lesbian/Gay/Bisexual/Transgender (LGBT+) Veterans. She is also interested in neuropsychology, and hopes to find a program that will incorporate all 3 areas of research.
Research Assistant: Web-based CBT for substance misusing and PTSD symptomatic OEF/OIF veterans
Research Assistant: Riluzole for PTSD: Efficacy of a glutamatergic modulator as augmentation treatment for posttraumatic stress disorder
Bronte is looking forward to working on a poster as well as assisting with manuscript writing in the coming months.
