The National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Maudsley Biomedical Research Centre (BRC) is a partnership between South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust and the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology & Neuroscience at King's College London. Together, these organisations represent one of the world's leading centres of research and clinical expertise in mental health, neuroscience and dementia.
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 new NIHR Mental Health TRC will carry out much-needed scientific research to help transform the lives of those affected by mental illness.
