        Adrian Angold received his medical, psychiatric and research training at the Bethlem Royal and Maudsley Hospitals and the Institute of Psychiatry in London, and spent a post-doctoral year at the Depression Research Unit at Yale University. During that period he was the lead author of the Child and Adolescent Psychiatric Assessment (CAPA) and the Mood and Feelings Questionnaire (MFQ), and has a continuing interest in the development of these measures and their various congeners. His abiding research interest in childhood and adolescent depression also found its first expression there.

        In 1988 he and E. Jane Costello moved to the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at Duke University Medical Center and founded the Developmental Epidemiology Program there. In the early 90’s Costello and Angold began the ongoing longitudinal
Great Smoky Mountains Study, and then the Caring for Children in the Community Study. These two studies have served as “platforms” for a variety of contributions to psychiatric services, developmental, nosological and outcomes research. They are now the basis for a program of genetic and imaging studies with a particular focus on gene-environment interplay.

        With the approach of the 21st century, Angold’s focus shifted to the study of psychiatric disorders (particularly anxiety disorders) in preschoolers in collaboration with Helen Link Egger. This program of work again began with measure development (the Preschool Age Psychiatric Assessment (PAPA)), and has now moved on to the study of patterns of presentation and continuity of early psychiatric disorders and risk factors predicting them. The most recently funded work in this area involves fMRI follow-up of preschoolers with anxiety disorders.
