Description: Neuroscience Seminar Series

Dr.Owen is the Director of the Neuroscience and Mental Health Research Institute. His main interest is in the genetics of major psychiatric and neurodegenerative disorders. He is closely involved in research programmes on schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, Alzheimer’s disease, ADHD and depression, and in the relationship between 22q11 deletions and psychosis. His most recent research activities have focused on the translation of genetic findings into benefit for patients though research on disease mechanisms, classification and diagnosis as well as in public engagement and communication.

He is the current Head of the Department of Psychological Medicine and Neurology in the School of Medicine and Deputy Head of the School of Medicine. As Head of the Department of Psychological Medicine and Neurology he oversaw the department becoming the UK's best in the latest Research Assessment Exercise. He is also the Director of the Medical Research Council’s Centre for Neuropsychiatric Genetics and Genomics. His work uses a combination of molecular genetic approaches including genome-wide association, copy number variant analysis and second generation sequencing to identify the specific genetic variants that confer risk to psychiatric and neurodegenerative disorders. He is increasingly interested in the impact of genetic discoveries on the understanding of disease mechanisms and classification.
