BiographyUlrike Schmidt came to the UK, after graduating in medicine in Düsseldorf, supported by the German National Scholarship Foundation. She trained in psychiatry at the Maudsley Hospital, London. She became a consultant in the South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust Eating Disorders Service in 1998 and Professor of Eating Disorders at King’s College London in 2006. She was a member of the first NICE Eating Disorders Guidelines development group. She has received multiple awards for her work, most recently the 2014 Hilde Bruch Award for Outstanding Achievements in Eating Disorders’ Research and Treatment. One key focus of her research has been on experimental therapeutics, i.e. development of eating disorder interventions as probes of disease mechanisms as well as tests of efficacy. This has included development of brief scalable psychological treatments and use of novel ‘brain-directed treatments’, such as non-invasive neuromodulation. She has produced over 400 publications on eating disorders.
