An illustration representing partnerships, research and academia


The NIHR Maudsley Biomedical Research Centre (BRC) is part of the National Institute for Health and Care Research (NIHR) and hosted by South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust in partnership with King's College London

Our mission is to translate basic scientific research into benefits for patients, and working in partnership with other organisations is critically important to us.

We have an extensive track record of successful collaboration with patient groups, industry, funders, and other academic centres, and we are always looking for new partners to support the delivery of innovative research.

In addition to state-of-the-art research facilities and an expert academic leadership team, our access to a diverse, well characterised patient and population cohorts means that we can deliver innovative trials and other well designed studies in mental and physical health, quickly and efficiently.

We work with technology firms, pharmaceutical companies, charities, and patient groups to develop and implement new tests and treatments for mental health and related disorders.

In September 2018 we joined a newly formed NIHR Mental Health Translational Research Collaboration (TRC) which will work with industry and charity partners to find new treatments and therapeutics. The NIHR Mental Health TRC will carry out much-needed scientific research to help transform the lives of those affected by mental illness.

We are always looking for new partners who can work with us to translate basic science into patient benefits. 

Making use of our unique research facilities, we collaborate with industry, clinicians, patient organisations, and other academic centres on research projects of all shapes and sizes. 

Additionally, we offer consultancy, contracted services and training partnerships across all our areas of expertise.
