Professor David Baldwin is Professor of Psychiatry within Medicine at the University of Southampton.
Professor Baldwin became Head of the Mental Health Group in 2008 and was awarded a Personal Chair in 2010. He trained in medicine at Charing Cross Hospital Medical School, London and then in psychiatry at St Mary's Hospital Medical School and the Maudsley Hospital, London.
Professor Baldwin leads a group that aims to improve clinical outcomes in patients with mood and anxiety disorders. This involves investigating the role of neurobiological and psychological factors in causing and maintaining illness; through improving trial design when evaluating efficacy and tolerability of treatment interventions; by assessing the effectiveness and acceptability of treatment interventions in wider clinical practice; through identifying more accurately those patient groups at particular risk of poor outcomes; and by offering a specialist clinical service to patients with chronic and treatment-resistant conditions.
He leads the Anxiety Disorders Research Network, an international multi-centre independent collaborative cross-disciplinary research grouping, with support from the European College of Neuropsychopharmacology (ECNP).
He is an Honorary Consultant Psychiatrist in Southern Health NHS Foundation Trust, where he leads the tertiary referral specialist service for patients with mood and anxiety disorders.
