Professor John Geddes' research focuses on the development and evaluation of treatments for people with bipolar and other mental disorders. His team has established large cohorts of patients, developed new approaches to self-management and monitoring, and conducted clinical trials as well as influential research syntheses. By involving patients in research, John has understood the nature of mood disorder more accurately and is increasingly using this knowledge to investigate the basic neurobiology and genetic mechanisms of the disorder.
