Joaquim Radua

Dr. Radua is a psychiatrist medical doctor and statistician who earned his doctorate in biostatistics of brain imaging at the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology & Neuroscience (IoPPN, King’s College London, University of London).

He has led many multidisciplinary studies about psychiatric disorders and has analyzed a large number of clinical and neuroimaging datasets; these usually worldwide collaborations have lead to his inclusion in the Highly Cited Researchers List 2017, 2018 and 2019.

He has also developed several new meta-analytic and neuroimaging methods, among which ‘SDM’ software must be highlighted for becoming a standard within the scientific community. His research is currently also focused on the clinical prediction based on available clinical and biological data to pave the way for evidence-based personalized medicine in psychiatry.

At the academic level he teaches and coordinates several postgraduate courses in statistics and neuroimaging, is an associate editor of Frontiers in Psychiatry, BioMed Research International and World Journal of Psychiatry, and holds the presidency of the Spanish Neuroimaging Society.

He has mainly developed his work in London (IoPPN, where he is a honorary researcher and keeps continued collaborations with Dr. Paolo Fusar-Poli), New Haven (Yale University, Connecticut, USA), Stockholm (Karolinksa Institutet, where he is also a honorary researcher and keeps continued collaborations with Prof. David Mataix-Cols) and Barcelona (FIDMAG Germanes Hospitalàries and IDIBAPS, where he works nowadays).
