Dr. Azmeraw Amare is a clinical and genetic epidemiologist interested in Precision medicine, pharmacogenomics, and translational medicine, and with particular expertise in using genetic and bioinformatic approaches to understand the biological basis of complex health conditions related to mental wellbeing, pharmacogenomics, cardiometabolic disorders and healthy ageing.

He has a multidisciplinary educational background, with academic qualifications in clinical and genetic epidemiology (the University of Groningen in the Netherlands, MSc), public health research methodology (Université Libre de Bruxelles in Belgium, MPH), and Medicine (the University of Adelaide in Australia, PhD). He is the NHMRC Emerging Leadership Fellow (2021-2026), ARC Discovery Early Career Researcher (2021-2024) and the US Brain Behaviour Research Foundation NARSAD Young Investigator (2019-2021) and leads the G-ENomics of mentAl well-Being and heaLthy age-ING (ENABLING) research group based at the Adelaide Medical School.

His research, which has been conducted in collaboration with scientists around the world, has sought to find an answer to fundamental questions about how genetics and the interaction between genetic and environmental factors regulate individuals’ risk to mental illness and response to pharmacological treatment. He has led several genetic association studies that identified novel genes underlying; (i) risk to mental illness (Amare AT, et al. Nature: Molecular Psychiatry, 2020), (ii) response to pharmacological treatment (Amare AT, et al. JAMA Psychiatry 2018; 75(1): 65-74.), (iii) variability in cardiovascular traits (Nolte IM, Munoz ML, Tragante V, Amare AT, et al. Nature Communications 2017; 8: 15805) and (iv) the overlapping effects of mental- and physical medical disorders (Amare AT, et al. Translational Psychiatry 2017; 7: e1007). The impact of his work has been recognised by prizes, scholarships and grant awards.

Dr Amare has an extraordinary publication track record, having authored or co-authored 84 articles (14 as a first/last author) and a book chapter, with 89% of them published in prestigious SCImago Q1 journals including in Nature, Nature Communications, Lancet, the New England Journal of Medicine, JAMA Psychiatry and Molecular Psychiatry, 54.4% listed in top 1%, 75% in top 10% (InCites). Dr Amare was selected by the Australian Review in consecutive years (2019 and 2020) as one of Australia’s top 40 Rising stars (best of 5 in Health and Medical Sciences list) among early-career researchers under 10 years.

GENomics of mentAl wellBeing and heaLthy age-ING — ENABLING research group 

Vision and Overall aim

Our DNA carries the basic instructions needed to reproduce, develop, survive and restore cellular damages. Unpacking DNA information and understanding the mechanisms of how the instruction in DNA is converted into proteins and interacts with the external environment is vital for a personalised approach to treatment, disease prevention and/or health promotion — to ultimately realise the century’s vision of precision medicine. Our group applies state-of-the-art data science techniques to understand the genetic and environmental determinants underlying the variability of human complex phenotypes including risk to diseases and response to treatment. Specifically, we are interested in studying the omics of complex phenotypes across the discipline of mental health and healthy ageing, including genomics (DNA), epigenomes, transcriptomics (RNA), proteomics (Protein), metabolomics and microbiomes.

Leveraging genomic data obtained from international biobanks, our research applies advanced bioinformatic techniques to explore the “omics” of (a) risk and pharmacological treatment response to mental health disorders (depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia), (b) neurodegenerative disorders (Alzheimer's disease and other dementias), (c) ageing traits (frailty, longevity, cognition and intrinsic capacity) and (d)mechanism of genetic overlap across physical medical and mental health disorders. 

Areas of research include

  • Pharmacogenomics in the treatment of mental illness
  • The genomics of risk to mental illness — depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia
  • Mechanism of genetic overlap across physical medical and mental health disorders
  • The epidemiology of mental illness and effective clinical interventions
  • Pharmacoepidemiology
  • Genomics of healthy ageing traits — human intrinsic capacity
  • Investigate the relationship of human intrinsic capacity with physical and mental health endpoints, including disability, morbidity, and mortality

“We have a place for Honours / PhD/ Masters / Mphil students who are interested in big data analytics — both genetic & clinical data using python or R programming languages. Students with a quantitative science background such as bioinformatics, computer science, mathematics, physics, engineering, Epidemiology/Biostatistics etc would be appropriate.”
