BiographyEd Bullmore holds a joint appointment as Vice-President, Experimental Medicine, and Head of GSK’s Clinical Unit in Cambridge (CUC) and Professor of Psychiatry in the University of Cambridge. He has combined these roles on a 50:50 basis since September 2005. Ed studied preclinical and physiological sciences at Christ Church, Oxford (BA 1981) and completed his clinical training at St Bartholomew’s Hospital Medical College, London (MBBS 1985). In the period 1987-88, he completed further medical training as a Lecturer in Medicine at the University of Hong Kong (MRCP 1989), before returning to the UK and starting specialist training in psychiatry, first at St George’s Hospital and then at the Bethlem Royal & Maudsley Hospital London (MRCPsych 1993). In the period 1993-99, he was supported by the Wellcome Trust as a Research Training Fellow, and then as an Advanced Research Training Fellow, at the Institute of Psychiatry. His research focused on development and application of new statistical techniques for analysis of human neuroimaging data, especially functional magnetic resonance imaging (PhD 1997). In 1999, he moved to Cambridge as Professor of Psychiatry and set up the Brain Mapping Unit to foster neuroimaging research in relation to psychiatry and cognitive neuroscience. In the period 2000-06, he was Director of fMRI at the Wolfson Brain Imaging Centre at Addenbrooke’s and, since 2005, he has been Clinical Director of the MRC- and Wellcome Trust-funded Behavioural & Clinical Neurosciences Institute. In 2008, he was elected to the Fellowship of the Academy of Medical Sciences (FMedSci). Ed has published more than 200 scientific papers on many aspects of neuroimaging, psychiatry and psychopharmacology. His main current research interests are analysing the complex network organization of the human brain based on MRI and electrophysiological data, and finding innovative approaches to support early clinical phases of new drug development.
