Lorika Shkreli

BSc, MSc


DPhil Student

I am a DPhil student under the supervision of Dr Andrea Reinecke and Dr Elizabeth Tunbridge with experience in psychopharmacology, experimental medicine, biomarkers and brain imaging.

In general, I am interested in the interplay between biological processes and neurocognitive mechanisms to develop innovative approaches for prevention and treatment of psychiatric disorders.
During my DPhil, I investigated how we can repurpose certain blood pressure drugs (angiotensin-II antagonists) to facilitate PTSD and anxiety prevention using neurocognitive tasks and functional brain imaging.

I am also part of the Oxford Mental Health Economics and Policy (OMHEP) group, in which I am working on the Warneford Park Project.

Prior to the DPhil I worked as a research assistant in the Neuroimmunology Group in the Department of Psychiatry, University of Cambridge.

I am funded by the Clarendon Fund, St John's College and the Oxford-MRC Doctoral Training Partnership.
