Argyris Stringaris, MD, PhD, MRCPsych is Chief of the Mood Brain & Development Unit at the National Institute of Mental Health. He trained in Child Psychiatry at the Maudsley Hospital in London (MRCPsych) where he served as Attending Physician (Consultant) of the National and Specialist Mood Disorder Team in Young People. He trained in neuroscience at the Institute of Psychiatry at King’s College London (PhD) where he was a Wellcome Trust Intermediate Fellow and Senior Lecturer until the summer of 2016, when he moved to the USA. He is married to Dr Kate Stringaris, néeTaylor, a hematologist, and they have three daughters.
Dr Stringaris’s aim is to understand why some young people become more depressed than others and how to improve our understanding and treatment of depression. He and his team use neuroimaging, epidemiological, and genetic methods to answer these questions. His work was awarded the 2014 Klingenstein Foundation Prize by the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, and the 2010 Research Prize from the European Psychiatric Association (EPA). His most recent book (co-authored with Eric Taylor) was published by Oxford University Press and awarded a High Commendation by the British Medical Association (2016).
As a child psychiatrist, Dr Stringaris sees and treats children and families who suffer from depression and other mood disorders.
