Dr Ivan Koychev

Research Volunteer Registry Lead

Ivan is a Senior Clinical Researcher in Oxford University's Department of Psychiatry. He is a clinical academic psychiatrist (on the GMC Specialist Register for Old Age and General Adult Psychiatry) with a focus on the development of treatments for neuropsychiatric disorders. His research spans the key components of neuroscience clinical trial methodology: conduct of proof-of-concept biomarker-based clinical trials in surrogate populations, testing of repurposed compounds, development of stratification and efficacy biomarkers, and creation of infrastructure for large-scale stratified recruitment into neuroscience experimental medicine studies and clinical trials. Clinically, his focus is on the assessment and management of patients with neuropsychiatric presentations in acute medical settings. 

Within DPUK, Ivan leads the Great Minds register and Clinical Studies Register of research volunteers, as part of the Trials Delivery Framework
