We support research, deliver teaching and training and provide specialist clinical services in psychiatry, neuroscience and neurology.
The Institute is led by Professor Sir Michael Owen, one of the world’s foremost experts in psychiatric genetics.
Over 220 people work here, including scientists, research support staff, research students and clinical trainees.
Much of the institute's research is conducted by the MRC centre for Neuropsychiatric Genetics and Genomics, and the institute is also home to the National Centre for Mental Health (NCMH) which works to engage the public, patients and clinicians with research.
Along with the work of our colleagues at the School of Psychology and the Neuroscience and Mental Health Research Institute (NMHRI), our research in Psychiatry and Neuroscience was ranked 2nd in the UK by REF 2014.
