Register for 'ask the expert' webinar on anxiety

The public are invited to a webinar to ask questions of a leading specialist about the latest research into anxiety. 

Professor Thalia Eley will take questions in a live ‘ask the expert’ event hosted by the National Institute for Health and Care Research (NIHR). It takes place online on Wednesday 5 June from 7pm to 8pm (GMT). 

Thalia is Professor of Developmental Behavioural Genetics at the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience, King’s College London, and co-lead of the Genetic Links to Anxiety and Depression (GLAD) Study

She also runs the EDIT lab, a group of researchers focusing on what factors may influence why people respond differently to life’s experiences. Specifically, she is interested in exploring which psychological treatments work best for different individuals and whether their genetics may play a part in how people respond.

How do I register? 

Guests must sign up in advance using the event registration form, where they can enter their question for the expert. They will also be able to ask their question during the event in the text box provided. 

Those unable to attend can provide their email address using the form so they can be sent a link to a recording of the event.

The event is hosted by the NIHR, a Department of Health and Social Care-funded organisation that works to improve the health and wealth of the nation through research.

It will be hosted on video conferencing service Zoom, which can be accessed through a computer browser or the Zoom app for devices.
