Our challenge areas

Harnessing genomics to big data

Combining genomics with the power of big data has great potential to unlock new insights into the stratification of brain disorders and develop routes to personalised treatment.

Exploiting the power of neuroscience

A major challenge is to translate genomic findings into disease relevant biology.

New treatments

We use genomics, combined with advances in neuroscience methods and data science, to contribute to the development of safer and more effective medicines for the personalised treatment of mental health and brain disorders.

Improving societal mental health

We recognise that mental health and brain disorders are societal challenges. 75% of mental health problems start before the age of 18.
