Psychiatry


The Division of Psychiatry represents a unique interdisciplinary grouping of international experts in psychiatry encompassing epidemiological, biological, genetic and health services research as well as trials. Close collaborations with the Institute of Neurology and the Division of Infection and Immunity provide diverse academic resources and a rich study environment.

We offer unrivalled access to clinical and community samples in which to conduct cutting-edge translational research, having strong collaborative links with five NHS Trusts operating within diverse, multi-cultural populations. For graduate research, detailed and considered discussions with prospective supervisors and the graduate tutor are provided prior to admission, to ensure research and career aspirations match each student’s experience.
