Keynotes


Sex- and gender-differences in the treatment of psychosis
Prof Iris Sommer, UMC Utrecht, The Netherlands
 

Iris Sommer studied medicine in Amsterdam and obtained her PhD (cum laude) in Utrecht on language in schizophrenia. She started the Voices Clinic Utrecht and investigated the cerebral basis of auditory verbal hallucinations. She also gathered a multidisciplinary team to study language as a biomarker for schizophrenia using computational linguistics.

In 2017 she moved to the north to become director of the Research Institute Brain and Cognition in UMC Groningen. She started the HAMLETT-OPHELIA cohort to study effects of maintenance medication and investigated optimal treatment for women with schizophrenia. She now leads a team of 20 PhD students and 5 postdocs.

Iris authored four popular scentific books from which two became best-sellers.
