Twelve years of exploring the neurobiology and treatment of generalised anxiety disorder

Professor David Baldwin

Professor of Psychiatry, University of Southampton

Professor Baldwin leads a group that aims to improve clinical outcomes in patients with mood and anxiety disorders. This involves investigating the role of neurobiological and psychological factors in causing and maintaining illness; through improving trial design when evaluating efficacy and tolerability of treatment interventions; by assessing the effectiveness and acceptability of treatment interventions in wider clinical practice; through identifying more accurately those patient groups at particular risk of poor outcomes; and by offering a specialist clinical service to patients with chronic and treatment-resistant conditions.
