Inflamed depression by Professor Ed Bullmore

The Anne Silk Lecture 2019
Held in association with the Silk Trust and the Royal Society of Medicine

Ed's recently published book, "The Inflamed Mind", will form the basis of this talk, discussing the new science on the link between depression and inflammation of the body and brain.

He will explain how and why we now know that mental disorders can have their root cause in the immune system, and outline a future revolution in which treatments could be specifically targeted to break the vicious cycle of stress, inflammation and depression.

Professor Bullmore is a world expert in neuroscience and mental health. He has been Professor of Psychiatry at the University of Cambridge since 1999, and in 2005, he also became Vice-President of Experimental Medicine at GlaxoSmithKline while maintaining his post at University of Cambridge.
