Spring Biannual Meeting 2016

Friday 13 May 2016 - Dartington Hall, Totnes
Psychoneuroimmunology: pioneering new treatments or blind alley?

Since the breakthrough in treating ‘general paralysis of the insane’ with penicillin, psychiatry and immunology have gone their separate ways. New evidence is now emerging that neuroinflammation may contribute to mental disorders including psychosis, affective disorders and dementia. Research on the therapeutic effects of anti-inflammatory drugs and other immune-modulators is ongoing.

Come along to this biannual meeting to find out how this academic avenue is progressing and if it is yet impacting on clinical practice.

Speakers include:

Mr Peter Bloomfield - Imperial College London
Dr Ruihua Hou - University of Southampton
Dr Golam Khandaker - University of Cambridge
Professor Jonathan Mill - Exeter University Medical School
Dr Valeria Mondelli - Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience, London
