About

WHO ARE WE?

The Translational Psychiatry Research Group is dedicated to conducting cutting-edge mechanistic, translational and experimental research.

We use multimodal neuroimaging, alongside pharmacological, cognitive, behavioural and computational techniques, to advance knowledge at the intersection of the neurosciences, psychology and psychiatry.

We are particularly interested in understanding how exposure to environmental risk factors for mental illness alter brain and cognitive function to give rise to symptoms, and how these underlying systems can be targeted so that we can develop new interventions.

MAKING A DIFFERENCE

The Translational Psychiatry Research Group focuses on areas of clinical importance in psychiatry. From investigating neurocognitive mechanisms by which developmental trauma operates, to exploring pharmacological underpinnings of psychotic symptoms,  therapeutic potential lies at the heart of our research endeavours.
