Professor Paul Glue

Paul GlueProfessor Paul Glue's research focuses on clinical and basic science to investigate the pharmacology of drug treatments in psychiatry and the disease mechanisms of neurological and psychiatric disorders. He is also interested in psychopharmacology and the development of novel therapeutics for affective disorders. Biomarkers for anxiety and the technical aspects of clinical trial design, including trialing simulation and modeling are other areas of interest. He has published extensively, with more than 300 papers, book chapters and abstracts to his name.
