Andrea Danese, MD, PhD

Dr Andrea Danese, MD, PhD, is Senior Lecturer / Associate Professor at the Institute of Psychiatry - King's College London

His research focuses on the biological mechanisms through which early life stress affects child development and later health. He is particularly interested in peripheral effects of child stress on immune and metabolic functioning, which may be central to understand how child stress affects mental and physical health. He is closely involved in two long-term epidemiological studies as co-investigator on the Environmental-Risk (E-Risk) Longitudinal Twin Study and the Dunedin Multidisciplinary Health and Development Study.

He is also an active clinician and works as Consultant Child & Adolescent Psychiatrist of the National & Specialist Child Traumatic Stress & Anxiety Clinic, at the Maudsley Hospital, London, UK
