Organisation profile

We conduct multilevel studies social environment, genetic, brain, psychological) to understand
risk and resilience factors and mechanisms in mental (ill) health from a transdiagnostic and
dimensional framework. Our work integrates individual differences in nonclinical, at risk and
clinical samples, incorporating novel methods such as ecological momentary assessment. This
work informs early detection and intervention studies as well as resilience-building and
prevention programs. Specific lines comprise the psychosis spectrum; the role of mentalizing
capacity for resilience and ill outcomes; emotion perception (and its brain basis) as a
critical factor underlying the social cognition impairment present in risk status for most
mental disorders; and novel methods of gene-person-environment interaction. This research has
immediate and long-term potential for knowledge transferece to a large variety of preventative
initiatives in clinical, educational and general population contexts.
