Who we are
We have a strong interdisciplinary team of researchers with expertise spanning epidemiology, psychiatry, psychology, primary care, cardiometabolic disease, genetics, statistics and bioinformatics.
Our research also benefits from close collaboration with colleagues in the Institute of Cardiovascular and Medical Sciences, Institute of Infection, Immunity and Inflammation, Institute of Neuroscience and Psychology, School of Life Sciences and School of Mathematics and Statistics, as well as research groups at Cardiff University, University of Oxford, King’s College London, University of Edinburgh, Dublin City University and the Karolinska Institute.
We welcome enquiries about new collaborations and postgraduate research opportunities.
I am a Research Associate in Public Health, interested in understanding the link between diet and health in association with other lifestyle risk factors.
I am Senior Lecturer in Molecular Genetics, with interests in the genetic basis for a range of human traits and disorders, both single gene and complex, focussing on brain- and body composition/performance-related phenotypes.
I am a Professor of Psychiatry, and my research is focused on understanding the role of immune molecular mechanisms (cytokines and chemokines) in serious mental disorder.
I am a Lecturer in Mental Health and a clinical neuropsychologist. My research focuses on understanding variation in cognitive function in chronic psychiatric and neurological disorders.
I am a Professor of Applied Neuropsychology and interested in understanding the nature of cognitive and emotional functioning in neurological and psychiatric conditions.
I am an MRC-funded PhD student, investigating the genetic links between circadian rhythmicity and bipolar disorder.
I am a Clinical Academic Fellow in Primary Care, particularly interested in social inequalities in lifestyle and physical activity, and how this impacts on health.
I am the Stroke Association HRH Princess Margaret Clinical Lecturer, and I am particularly interested in how people with stroke live with and manage their condition.
I am a Clinical Research Fellow in Psychiatry, and my research focuses on understanding the relationship between mood disorder and cardiometabolic disease.
I am a Clinical Lecturer in General Practice & Primary Care interested in chronic disease management.
I am a Clinical Senior Lecturer in General Practice & Primary Care with particular interests in chronic disease management and mental health.
I am an MRC-funded PhD student with a background in evolutionary and quantitative genetics, focussing on how genetic data can be used to explore causal relationships between major depression & chronic pain.
I am a Clinical Senior Lecturer in Psychiatry and Honorary Consultant Psychiatrist. My main areas of research are multimorbidity and perinatal mental illness.
I am a Lecturer in Public Health and I am interested in cognitive ageing: its modifiers (e.g. genetics or lifestyle) and its substrates (e.g. brain structure).
I am a Research Associate with a background in psychology, and my research focuses on understanding predictors of mental health, cognitive and brain imaging outcomes.
I am a Reader in Public Health and my research interests include public health economics, the application of econometric techniques within health care research, the evaluation of complex interventions and epidemiology.
I am the Norie Miller Professor of Primary Care Research, and my work focuses on optimising the care of patients with chronic illness and multimorbidity, taking into account the wider socioeconomic environment and social contexts in which patients live.
I am a Research Assistant in General Practice & Primary Care focusing on statistical approaches to exploring multimorbidity.
I am a Lecturer in Primary Care and I am particularly interested in the complexity of chronic pain alongside mental and physical health conditions.
I am a UKRI Innovation Fellow, and my research aims to explore how aspects of computer science can help us better understand the onset of mental and physical co-morbidities and associated adverse outcomes.
I am a Consultant Psychiatrist and Honorary Clinical Senior Lecturer in Psychiatry and my main area of research is into the physical co-morbidity of people with serious mental illness.
I am the Henry Mechan Professor of Public Health, and I have a longstanding interest in using record linkage to study chronic disease epidemiology.
I am an epidemiologist, and my research aims to understand how a person’s social context influences their health across the life course.
I’m a Professor of Psychiatry interested in the causes and treatment of major mood disorders such as depression and bipolar disorder, as well as the overlap between psychiatric and cardiometabolic disorders.
I am a Health Data Research-UK Research and Innovation Research Fellow with a background in molecular genetics, and my current research focus is on using genetics to investigate the link between psychiatric disorders and cardiometabolic disease.
I am a PhD student with a background in neuropsychology interested in ways in which cardiometabolic health influences brain structure and cognition, focusing on genetic determinants of cardiometabolic disease.
I am a JMAS Sim/RCPE Research Fellow, and my research investigates how genetic risk for neuroticism and major depression influence response to antidepressants and longer-term clinical outcomes.
