Associate Professor Jeffrey Looi is a clinical academic neuropsychiatrist, leading an international research network on cognitive neuroscience and structural neuroimaging biomarkers in neurodegenerative and neuropsychiatric disease. As an active clinician, he conducts clinical practice, mental health service/policy and population mental health research. He qualified MBBS (1992), and has been awarded two research higher doctorates, MD (2011) from the ANU and DMedSc (2018) from the University of Melbourne, the highest level of research degree awarded by these Universities. He is board certified as a consultant physician in psychiatry (FRANZCP, 1999) and has qualifications in medical administration (AFRACMA, 2006). A Foundation Faculty member since 2003, he was appointed (2006) as Associate Professor and has been Discipline Lead/Head since August 2016, Academic Unit of Psychiatry & Addiction Medicine, ANU Medical School. He was appointed as a Clinical Associate Professor at the Melbourne Neuropsychiatry Centre, University of Melbourne 2015-2019 and a Visiting Guest Researcher, Karolinska Institute, Stockholm, Sweden 2006-2016. He works in clinical practice two days per week.

Professor Looi has received multiple international research and leadership awards, including: a Fulbright Scholarship at the Laboratory of Neuro Imaging, UCLA Medical School (2005); Australian Davos Connection Future Summit Leadership award (2006); and a Young Psychiatrist Award from the Pacific Rim College of Psychiatrists (2012). He has been a senior medico-political representative with the Australian Medical Association and the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Psychiatrists for nearly two decades; and is an author/co-author on more than 230 peer-reviewed papers and 100+ other publications (Google Scholar h-index:29, i10-index:62, citations: 3927).

The international research network he leads is AUSSIE, the Australian United States Scandinavian/Spanish Imaging Exchange. This network focuses on mentoring medical researchers in collaborative clinical neuropsychiatry and neuroscience research: especially medical students, medical scientists and physicians in training, as well as collaborative interdisciplinary research (neuroscience, computational science/engineering, medical physics, psychology, neurology, neuroradiology and psychiatry). A number of collaborators have received local, national and international awards for their research excellence.

In 2020-2021, Professor Looi co-founded with Professors Stephen Allison, Tarun Bastiampillai, and Stephen Kisely, the Consortium of Australian-Academic Psychiatrists for Independent Policy and Research Analysis (CAPIPRA), a virtual mental health research and policy network he coordinates at the ANU Medical School, Canberra, Australia. The Consortium has published over 50 collaborative papers since inception, influencing public and private sector mental healthcare policy and practice.
