Overview

Professor John McGrath is a psychiatrist interested in discovering the causes of serious mental disorders. He is conjoint Professor at the Queensland Brain Institute.

His research aims to generate and evaluate nongenetic risk factors for schizophrenia. He has forged productive cross-disciplinary collaborations linking risk factor epidemiology with developmental neurobiology. For example, Professor McGrath and his colleagues have made discoveries linking prenatal vitamin D and later risk of mental illness in the offspring. In addition, John has supervised major systematic reviews of the epidemiology of schizophrenia.

Professor McGrath was awarded a John Cade Fellowship by the Australian National Health and Medical Research Council. In 2016 he was also awarded a Niels Bohr Professorship by the Danish National Research Foundation.

Qualifications

Fellow, Royal Australian & New Zealand College of Psychiatry

Doctor of Medicine, The University of Queensland

Doctor of Philosophy, The University of Queensland

Bachelor of Medicine, Bachelor of Surgery, The University of Queensland

Research Interests

The association between vitamin D status and brain outcomes

In collaboration with Professor Darryl Eyles, we are measuring early life vitamin D deficiency status and exploring if this changes the risk of later developing serious mental illness. These studies are in collaboration with colleagues in Denmark, Sweden and the Netherlands.

The demographic and clinical correlates of psychotic-like experiences

Using two large surveys conducted in Australia in 1997 and 2007, our group have undertaken a suite of students designed to understand the clinical relevance of isolated psychotic-like experiences. Over recent years we have published many papers on this topic, and have made important contributions with respect to how psychotic-like experiences are associated with (a) an increased risk of later psychotic disorder, (b) depression, anxiety and substance use disorders, (c) a family history of mental illness, (d) exposure to trauma, (e) an increased risk of suicidal ideation and behaviour, (f) general physical health, and (g) help-seeking.

The Survey of High Impact Psychosis (SHIP)

Our group was one of seven sites involved in the design and administration of the second Australian Survey of psychotic disorders. In collaboration with a large national team, we continue to explore key issues related to the needs of people with psychosis in Australia.

Related Research

Professor McGrath was awarded a John Cade Fellowship in Mental Health Research by the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) in 2013. This five year fellowship will support Professor McGrath’s existing research into modifiable risk factors for schizophrenia.

In particular, the Fellowship has enabled Professor McGrath and his team to build a clinical trials platform in South-East Queensland. These trials, collectively known as Cadence, are broadly related to improving clinical outcomes for people with psychosis, particularly early psychosis. See the Cadence website for more information.
