Carmine M. Pariante is Professor of Biological Psychiatry at the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience, King’s College London, and Consultant Perinatal Psychiatrist at the South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust.

He investigates the role of stress and inflammation in the pathogenesis of mental disorders and in the response to psychotropic drugs, both in clinical samples and experimental settings.

His work focuses on depression and fatigue, with a particular interest in the perinatal period and in subjects with medical disorders. Moreover, he also uses experimental and cellular models. More recently, he has developed an interest in social prescribing and in using nutritional, meditative and art interventions to improve mental health.

He has published more that 320 papers, and his current H-Index is 69. He is also the appointed Editor in Chief on the journal Brain Behaviour and Immunity, and a 2018 and 2019 Clarivate Analytics Highly Cited Researcher.

He has received numerous awards for his research, most recently the 2012 “Academic Psychiatrist of the Year” Award from the Royal College of Psychiatrists, the 2015 Anna-Monika Prize for Research on Depression, the 2016 PNIRS Normal Cousins Award for Research in Psychoneuroimmunology, the 2017 Award for Outstanding Contribution to the Field of Infant Mental Health, and the 2017 NARSAD Distinguished Investigator Award. This last award is one of the most prestigious international research awards in psychiatry.

His dream is that new therapeutic tools targeting the stress and inflammatory systems will soon be available to alleviate the suffering of patients with mental health problems.
