Adam AJ Al-Diwani

Dr Adam AJ Al-Diwani is a Wellcome Trust DPhil Training Fellow at the Department of Psychiatry, at the University
of Oxford. He is a psychiatrist in training interested in the
 contribution of adaptive immunity 
to the biology of psychiatric 
illness. His DPhil centres 
around comparing autoimmune
 encephalitis with neuronal
 surface antibody-associated
 isolated psychiatric syndromes. In 
particular, he is interested in the immunising events associated with the generation of NMDAR antibodies. Additionally, he 
is collaborating with colleagues in the Wellcome Centre for Integrative Neuroimaging (WIN) to investigate possible fMRI and spectroscopic signatures associated with these illnesses.
