Focus of research

The focus of my research over the past year has been the population at Ultra High Risk for developing a first psychosis.

At the moment, I am involved in the European Network of national schizophrenia networks studying Gene-Environment interartions (EU-GEI). 

In this large-scale collaboration, the aim is to identify, over a 5-year period, the interactive genetic, clinical and environmental determinants, involved in the development, severity and outcome of schizophrenia.
