MOOD AND ANXIETY DISORDERS RESEARCH GROUP
Dr. Cox is a clinical research psychologist in the Department of Psychiatry where he holds the rank of Professor. Dr. Cox is also a Professor in Clinical Psychology in the Department of Psychology at the University of Manitoba and is able to directly accept and supervise new MA and PhD clinical psychology students into the program. He is an author on more than 160 articles published in peer- reviewed Journals as well as several book chapters.
Dr. Cox's research interests lie in the area of anxiety and personality disorders, along with depression, all from a population mental health perspective. Examples of recent findings from his Mood and Anxiety Disorder Research Group lab are below. A strategy that Dr. Cox has successfully employed is to collaborate with leading population health researchers such as Dr. Bridget Grant at NIMH, and to gain access to large nationally representative datasets such as the National Comorbidity Survey (NCS) and its Replication (NCS-R), the National Epidemiological Survey on Alcohol and Related Conditions (NESARC), and the Canadian Community Health Survey (CCHS).
Researchers and students interested in working with Dr. Cox may contact him via email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Dr. Cox also recently held a Canada Research Chair in Mood and Anxiety Disorders from the Federal Government of Canada (2001-2011). He is currently funded by SSHRC.
Current and Recent Students
Dr. Cox frequently uses an apprenticeship model in his training and supervision of students, whereby they enter the research team early in their honours year and continue to pursue their MA and PhD work with him.
