Prof Christos Pantelis
Brief description I have established and head the Melbourne Neuropsychiatry Centre within the University of Melbourne. My university position is a research chair with the specific aim of leading a team of researchers in neuropsychiatric research. One of the goals of the Centre is to deliver world-class neuroimaging research in psychiatric disorders. I head a team of researchers that have been undertaking neuroimaging and neuropsychological work on schizophrenia and psychosis since 1993 in Australia. My particular interest and impact on the field has been to define and understand progressive brain changes in schizophrenia and related psychotic disorders. Further work will place these changes within a brain maturational context, particularly examining trajectories of development in adolescence and young adulthood.
