National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Maudsley Biomedical Research Centre
Together with Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience (IoPPN), the Trust hosts the NIHR Maudsley Biomedical Research Centre (BRC). The BRC is researching new tests, treatments and theories in mental health, neurology, and dementia. Its aim is to accelerate the translation of the latest scientific discoveries into early phase clinical trials in people and other well-designed studies. The findings from these studies can then be developed and implemented to produce new tests and treatments for people with mental and neurological disorders.
Clinical Research Facility
The NIHR and Wellcome Trust King's Clinical Research Facility opened in November 2012. The building comprises two main research areas within King's College Hospital's Cheyne Wing: the Clinical Research Facility, spanning three floors, with a further standalone unit - the Clinical Trials Facility. Each area has been designed and built to compliment the other in terms of ability to offer a unique and neutral space to carry out trials in a dedicated research setting.
Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology & Neuroscience (IoPPN)
We have a long, shared history with the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology & Neuroscience (IoPPN) at King's College London. Our very close partnership includes a statement of common purpose to work together to establish the best possible care for people who experience mental health problems.
The IoPPN is at the forefront of mental health care, redefining mental illness, its treatment and its place in society. Alongside world class research, it provides education and training across a wide range of undergraduate, postgraduate and PhD courses, study and programmes.
The Maurice Wohl Clinical Neuroscience Institute was opened in June 2015. It was built together with Kings College University and King’s College Hospital and is dedicated to advancing our understanding of the molecular, cellular and functional basis of neurological and psychiatric disorders and the discovery, implementation, and evaluation of novel diagnostic tools and therapeutic interventions
The Institute creates an environment that fosters collaboration between researchers across multiple disciplines, and enhances links between academic institutions and healthcare delivery, in order to translate basic research into clinical practice.
