Translating neuroimmunology for innovation in clinical research and services

Key publications

More publications

Adam divides his time between clinical psychiatry, teaching, and research. He recently completed a Wellcome DPhil fellowship investigating the psychiatric presentation and B cell immunobiology of NMDAR-antibody encephalitis.

A direct extension is further development of  systems and services for early identification of autoimmune encephalitis in frontline services, a key determinant of outcomes. 

The forthcoming laboratory focus is on the direct investigation of interactions between brain antigens and the periphery with a focus on sleep and ageing.

Overall, a key aim is clinical innovation by the transdiagnostic application of cutting edge neuroimmunology via collaboration with diverse clinical and laboratory colleagues.
