  Dr. Canino is the Director of the Behavioral Sciences Research Institute, which is under the office of the Dean of Academic Affairs at the School of Medicine, University of Puerto Rico. Dr. Canino holds a Master in Psychology from the University of Puerto Rico and a Doctorate in Psychology from Temple University. She has been the principal investigator of several psychiatric epidemiological studies that have been carried out on the island since 1984. Presently, she is the Principal investigator of a grant designed to investigate Health Disparities among Latino and Afro-Caribbeans (p60 MD002261-01), a continuation of a former EXPORT Center (P20 MD000537). She is also the research director and a co-investigator for the Latino Research Program Project (LRPP) (Dr. Alegria is PI) which is now doing a pilot study on ethnic differences in perceived impairment and need for care (P50 MH073469-03). Dr. Canino is also the co- Principal investigator for a study on the interplay between genes and the environment in infant development (R01 HD0496685-01, Dr. Silberg co-PI), the co-Principal Investigator for a study assessing the genetics of asthma and obesity (R01 HL079966-03, Dr. Celedon co-PI) and the co-Principal investigator of an intervention for depressed Latina mothers with children with asthma (Dr. McQuaid co-PI). She was a past reviewer (1992-1997) of the peer review committee of the Psychopathology Child and Adolescent Treatment Branch of the National Institute of Mental Health and a reviewer and member of the editorial board of several scientific and peer review journals. Dr. Canino has published several papers in peer-reviewed journals in the areas of cross-cultural child and adult psychiatric epidemiology, as well as on the service utilization patterns and barriers to care faced by Latino children and adults. She has also published substantially in the area of instrument psychometrics, particularly as it relates to the adaptation and translation of instruments to the Latino culture. For the past 18 years, she has been a leading Latino researcher in the field of psychiatric epidemiology, and psychometrics after having carried out four major psychiatric epidemiologic surveys on the island of Puerto Rico and has translated and tested several diagnostic and service utilization measures. She has collaborated with several investigators in the U.S. and abroad in the analyses of data sets and in the translation and adaptation of instruments. In 2006, Dr. Canino was appointed by the Secretary of the U.S. Department of Health Services to serve as a member of the National Advisory Mental Health Council, at the National Institute of Health (NIH). In that same year (2006) she also became a member of the DSM V workgroup on Externalizing Disorders. Recently, Dr. Canino received the Rema Lapouse Award, at the APHA 137th Annual Meeting and Exposition in Philadelphia 2009, which is granted to outstanding scientists in the area of psychiatric epidemiology.
