Prof James MacCabe appointed co-lead for KHP Psychosis CAG

Prof James MacCabe will join Dr Robert Harland (Clinical Director; Consultant Psychiatrist, South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust, and King's College London) to co-lead the KHP Psychosis Clinical Academic Group (CAG).

Prof James MacCabeProf MacCabe [pictured] arrived at the Maudsley Hospital in 1997 as a psychiatry trainee. He has been honorary consultant psychiatrist at the National Psychosis Unit since 2005, and in parallel, had pursued an academic career at the Institute of Psychiatry Psychology and Neuroscience (IoPPN). He also serves on the Board of Trustees of the mental health charity, SANE. 

Prof MacCabe's clinical work and research is geared towards helping people whose psychosis has not responded to standard antipsychotic treatment. 

His research includes work on the epidemiology, genetics, and neurochemistry underlying treatment refractory schizophrenia, identifying biomarkers that may be used in personalised medicine, developing new treatments, and ensuring that existing treatments are used to best effect. 

The Psychosis CAG covers all aspects of working with adults with psychosis. It brings together high-quality clinical services for psychosis at South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust (NHS FT), and academic expertise in psychosis in the IoPPN in partnership with service users and carers. The CAG integrates these resources to improve clinical care for people with psychosis.

Prof MacCabe said:

I am looking forward to building on the excellent work that has already been achieved in the Psychosis CAG. I want to ensure that the research we conduct at King's College London properly addresses the priorities and needs of the communities we serve, and this can only be achieved through close collaboration between clinical staff from all disciplines, service users, carers and researchers.
