Christiaan Vinkers is a psychiatrist and full professor of Stress and Resilience at the Amsterdam UMC and GGZ InGeest. His overall research objective is to better understand, maintain, or even improve resilience in the face of stress, and to use stress and trauma as a transdiagnostic approach within and outside psychiatry. His research has contributed how (traumatic) stress increases the risk for psychiatric disorders and helped to identify who is (not) at risk. He is currently involved in epidemiological studies, experimental designs, and clinical trials to further disentangle and integrate the biological and psychological determinants of stress resilience.
