Our research

The NIHR Maudsley Biomedical Research Centre (BRC) carries out translational research in mental health, neurology, and dementia.  Our aim is to accelerate the translation of the latest scientific discoveries into first-in-man clinical trials and other well-designed studies. 

By bringing together scientists and clinicians from different disciplines, these findings can then be evaluated, developed and implemented in the NHS, providing new tests and treatments for people with mental and neurological disorders. 

Research clusters

Research at the NIHR Maudsley BRC is organised into five clusters:

Within research clusters, our work is organised into themes, each of which addresses specific areas of mental health or neuroscience, such as dementia, or specific areas of research, such as mobile health.
