Professor Robert Stewart

  • Lead Co-Investigator

I lead the Clinical and Population Informatics theme of the SLAM Biomedical Research Centre for Mental Health, and have been academic lead for the Clinical Record Interactive Search (CRIS) application since its development in 2007-08. CRIS is a ground-breaking data resource providing researcher access to anonymised electronic health record data on over 250,000 mental health service users in order to promote translational research for improving mental health. I have had longstanding interests in the interface between mental and physical health, in the epidemiology of dementia and other late-life mental disorders, and in international mental health. In relation to Wherl Group work, I have led a number of analyses over the years relating to ageing and mental health in the British National Surveys of Psychiatric Morbidity.
