Angela Roberts, University of Cambridge, UK

Angela Roberts obtained her PhD in neuroendocrinology (1985) from University of Cambridge and following postdoctoral studies researching into the neural and neurochemical basis of cognitive flexibility was appointed Lecturer in Department of Anatomy, Cambridge, in 1996, becoming Professor of Behavioural Neuroscience in 2010. She was elected a Fellow of the Academy of Medical Sciences in 2016. Recent scientific contributions have involved establishing non-human primate models of positive and negative emotion regulation, fractionating out the distinct prefrontal networks that may underlie the varied aetiology of affective disorders and elucidating the sensitivity of these networks to anxiolytics/antidepressants essential for the more effective targeting of current pharmacotherapies.
