Our research covers three main themes, with four cross-cutting areas of study.
We are working to learn how genetic and environmental factors interact to cause major psychotic and mood disorders, such as schizophrenia and bipolar disorder.
We are researching the causes of child and adolescent depression and how genetics and environment interact to lead to developmental disorders like ADHD and autism.
We are working to develop better treatments and support for conditions including Alzheimer's, Huntington's and Parkinson's.
We analyse large volumes of biological data to help understand the causes of mental-health related diseases.
Our work aims to reveal the biological mechanisms by which genes and life events influence our brain function and behaviour.
We investigate the effects of genes on brain structure and function and on behaviour, as well as their interaction with the environment.
We work closely with the National Centre for Mental Health to recruit members of the public for research.
