Speaker information

Ulrike Schmidt, Professor of Eating Disorders, King's College London

Speaker: Professor Ulrike Schmidt -The need for early intervention in the treatment of eating disorders is widely recognised, as more engrained eating disorders are more difficult to treat. Whilst effective treatment exists for bulimia nervosa, and for children and adolescents with anorexia nervosa, treatment for adults with anorexia remains a major challenge. Recent advances in understanding the neurobiological underpinnings of eating disorders, are opening up the possibility of creating more targeted “precision treatments“. In this talk, I will present data on novel approaches, mainly to the treatment of anorexia nervosa, from talking therapies to neuromodulation.
