Maurice Wohl Clinical Neuroscience Institute
The Maurice Wohl Clinical Neuroscience Institute was opened by HRH The Princess Royal in June 2015.
This was a £42m project to provide a state of the art new building for the Institute. It was built by the university together with its partner NHS Trusts, King’s College Hospital and the South London and Maudsley NHS Trust.
The Institute creates an environment that fosters collaboration between researchers across multiple disciplines, and enhance links between academic institutions and healthcare delivery, in order to translate basic research into clinical practice.
On opening the institute, Christopher Shaw, Professor of Neurology and Neurogenetics at King’s and Director of the Maurice Wohl Clinical Neuroscience Institute said: 'What this Institute offers is a chance for clinicians and scientists to share ideas, expertise and resources to tackle some of the most challenging conditions affecting our community. We have designed the Institute with that in mind - to make connections between people, so that we become more than the sum of our parts. Establishing a world-leading research facility at the heart of a thriving clinical centre, talented people and the very best equipment, that is when progress is most likely to be made. One in three people will suffer from a significant neurological or psychiatric disorder in their lives and we hope that the Institute’s research will benefit millions of people around the world.'
