MRC Centre for Neuropsychiatric Genetics and Genomics

The MRC Centre for Neuropsychiatric Genetics and Genomics (MRC CNGG) brings together world-leading researchers to investigate the major causes of mental health problems.

Established in 2009, we are Wales' first MRC Centre and the largest psychiatric genetics group in the UK.

Our research themes cover a wide range of psychiatric, neurodevelopmental and neurodegenerative disorders, and provide a focus for our world-leading research.

There are a whole range of studies and projects at the Centre that you can be a part of, with opportunities for people with or without personal experience of mental health conditions.

We aim to engage with the public about the real-world impact of our research, and provide opportunities for two-way communication.
