A/Professor K. Oliver Schubert

My research focuses on the molecular underpinnings of psychiatric disorders such as schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, and major depression. I am particularly interested in transcriptomic and proteomic signatures of clinical endophenotypes (subtypes), treatment response and treatment resistance. This research is facilitated through a number of growing clinical cohorts (e.g. mood disorders, psychotic disorders, perinatal mental health) developed at the Discipline of Psychiatry, as well as through post-mortem brain research and animal models. I have a clinical special interest in Youth Mental Health and in the treatment of Early Psychosis.

Research

My research focuses on the molecular underpinnings of psychiatric disorders such as schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, and major depression. I am particularly interested in transcriptomic and proteomic signatures of clinical endophenotypes (subtypes), treatment response and treatment resistance. This research is facilitated through a number of growing clinical cohorts (e.g. mood disorders, psychotic disorders, perinatal mental health) developed at the Discipline of Psychiatry, as well as through post-mortem brain research and animal models. I have a clinical special interest in Youth Mental Health and in the treatment of Early Psychosis. 

Current research projects:

PROTECTIVE TRIAL (collaboration with Department of Anaesthesia - A/Professor Bernd Froessler):

As part of this clinical trial (300 participants), we are investigating the impact of iron deficiency in on women’s mental health outcomes such as anxiety, depression, and cognitive function. We are also finding out whether treatment of iron deficiency by iron infusion positively influences mental health outcomes during the first year after giving birth.

ASTHMA IN PREGNANCY STUDY (collaboration with the Robinson Institute – Professor Vicki Clifton/ Dr Luke Grzeskowiak)

Over 300 participants were enrolled in this project investigating the impact of asthma on pregnancy outcomes. Several mental health parameters such as depression, anxiety, and quality of life were also assessed over the course of pregnancy, and we are specifically investigating how mental health interacts with chronic medical conditions such as asthma in pregnant women.

COGNITIVE FUNCTION AND MOOD DISORDERS STUDY (CoFaMS)

The CoFaMS project (Principal investigator: Professor Bernhard Baune) investigates the relationship between mood- and anxiety disorders and cognitive outcomes such as memory, attention, or planning ability. We are also investigating the biological underpinnings of mood disorder symptoms and responses to treatments through genetic, transcriptomic, and proteomic analyses of participant’s blood samples. Currently, >250 participants have been assessed for the CoFaMS project in South Australia.

COGNITIVE AND AND FUNCTIONAL ASSESSMENTS IN PSYCHOSIS STAGING STUDY (CoFAPSS)

The CoFAPSS project (Principal investigator: Professor Bernhard Baune) investigates the longitudinal development of psychotic symptoms, neurocognitive symptoms, and functional outcomes in people who are suffering from a psychotic disorder such as schizophrenia, schizoaffective disorder, or bipolar disorder. In order to better understand the biological drivers of disease progression in psychotic disorders, we are also collecting participant’s blood samples for genetic, transcriptomic, and proteomic analyses.

TRAJECTORIES OF RESPONSE TO ARIPIPRAZOLE MAINTENA STUDY (TRAMS)

This investigator-initiated naturalistic clinical study (Principal Investigator: Professor Bernhard Baune), supported by the Lundbeck Institute, enrolls patients with psychotic disorders such as schizophrenia or schizoaffective disorder who are treated with the recently available depot antipsychotic aripipazole maintena. The study assesses patient’s psychotic symptoms as well as their cognitive- and everyday functioning before and during the first year of treatment.
