About the Speaker

Professor Klaus Ebmeier, University of Oxford

  • Foundation Chair of Old Age Psychiatry
  • Professorial Fellow Linacre College, Oxford
  • Consultant Psychiatrist (Oxford Health NHS FT)

Professor Ebmeier explores neurobiology of ageing using epidemiological imaging and he aims to answer the question “Why do some people suffer from depression and memory loss as they age, whereas others stay well for the whole of their lives?”. His aim is to discover the mechanisms that link experience and life style in mid-life, with illness developing in advancing age.
