My research is characterized by a multidisciplinary approach to improve the classification of psychiatric disorders, in particular of major depression, using insights from clinical psychiatry, statistics, epidemiology, genetics, and philosophy of science. My main areas of expertise include major depressive disorder, psychiatric disease classification and statistical modeling, psychiatric genetics, and comorbidity.

Dr. L. (Lisette) van der Meer, psychologist, received her PhD in cognitive neuropsychiatry. In 2011 she started working as a senior researcher at the department of Rehabilition at Lentis Psychiatric Institute, where she set up a research group focussing upon (social) cognitive rehabilitation research in severe mental illness. Since 2019 she works as an assistant professor at the department of clinical and developmental neuropsychology, from which she continues her research. In keeping her employment at Lentis, she aims to sustain the connection between research and clinical practice.

As clinician and head of the clinical training programme for residents in old age psychiatry, I am daily confronted with the lack of evidence for the treatment we offer to our older patients with psychiatric diseases. This confrontation has motivated me to devote my own research line to clinically relevant research of the common mental disorders, i.e. mood-, anxiety and somatoform disorders. Herein, my main interest lies in the interaction between somatic health and these common mental disorders.

Epidemiology, prevention and treatment of Mood and Anxiety Disorders, with depression as a centra theme . My aim is to develop new interventions and clinical applications based on a better understanding of what goes wrong in depression, both on a psychological and a neurobiological level. My research is both in large patient cohorts such as the Netherlands Study of Depression and Anxiety (NESDA), in population studies such as LIFELINES and TRAILS, but also in smaller clinical studies. Pathophysiological mechanisms of interest include neuroinflammation and chronobiology, in which we have a number of PhD trajectories. Current trials include oral ketamine for Treatment Resistant Depression, anti-inflammatory drugs for depression, studies with Ecological Momentary Asessment and applications for self management developed together with patients.
As a clinician and a teacher I see patients with Treatment Resistant Depression in our Tertiairy Mood Disorders program.

My reseach focuses on personalizing treatment based on symptoms, rather than diagnoses. To this end, I am interested in evidence-based research based on the methodological and statistical approaches, such as machine learning, Bayesian statistics and psychometrics.

Postdoctoral researcher
My main research interests lie in the development of patient-centered diagnostic and risk-prediction models for use in psychiatric practice. More specifically, my research focuses on the methodological and statistical approaches that are needed to develop such models in evidence-based research. My methodological/statistical interests lie in (1) Modern Psychometrics, (2) Modeling of (intensive) longitudinal data, (3) Prediction Modeling and (4) Machine Learning.
As part of my job, I work as a statistical advisor for researchers in the UMCG Department of Psychiatry and in affiliated mental healthcare institutions.
