Translational Psychiatry

Our research focuses on the pathophysiology of mental disorders, their early detection, and their prevention and treatment.

Research focus

The Translational Psychiatry team conducts interdisciplinary research in several key areas revolving around psychotic disorders including their prediction, neurofunctional and cognitive mechanisms, and the efficacy of potential innovative treatments such as cannabinoids.

We also run a variety of pharmacological, clinical, and intervention studies. For these studies, we use methods including structural and functional neuroimaging, computational modelling, deep brain stimulation, metacognitive training, and genetics.
