Bonnie J. Kaplan, PhD is a Professor Emerita in the Cumming School of Medicine at the University of Calgary, in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. Originally from Ohio, she did all her training in the US (an honors baccalaureate degree in Psychology at the University of Chicago, and Master’s and PhD degrees in Experimental and Physiological Psychology at Brandeis University). Her interest in the biological basis of behavior led to postdoctoral training and then faculty research in neurophysiology at Yale University Department of Neurology and the West Haven (CT) Veterans Administration Neuropsychology Laboratory until she moved to Canada and the University of Calgary in 1979. She has published widely on the biological basis of developmental disorders and mental health, especially the contribution of nutrition to brain development and brain function. She was the founding principal investigator of the Alberta Pregnancy Outcomes and Nutrition (ApronStudy.ca). She is also a member of the International Society for Nutritional Psychiatry Research (ISNPR.org), which includes scientists studying the inflammatory basis of mental disorders, and the role of dietary intake. Bonnie has over 180 peer-reviewed publications and textbook contributions, and many more invited lectures. In 2018, for Canada’s 150th birthday, she was named one of the country’s top 150 Difference Makers in Mental Health. In 2019, she was awarded the prestigious Dr. Rogers Prize, a national award given every two years in Canada for research or clinical work in complementary, alternative, integrative health (drrogersprize.org).
