The NIHR Maudsley Biomedical Research Centre (BRC) represents one of Europe's leading academic-healthcare partnerships, in terms of the number of clinical trials we conduct and the total number of patients recruited into them. Our academic research strengths in psychology, psychiatry and neuroscience gives us a unique advantage in being able to deliver high quality clinical trials across the field of mental health and neuroscience.
As part of The National Institute for Health Research (NIHR), we are one of 11 NIHR Biomedical Research Centres in England, and the only Biomedical Research Centre specialising in the full spectrum of research into mental health across all ages, from infancy to older adults.
We have research expertise in a wide range of clinical disorders in mental health and neuroscience, with extensive experience in experimental medicine and early phase clinical trials. In health technology, we offer an environment where digital industries can innovate, making use of our informatics and data science expertise to unlock the value of 'big data' in health records, while providing expert guidance in NHS information governance. We also offer cross-cutting neuroimaging and -omics expertise, across clinical disorders.
