This year's theme is “Origins and new beginnings".

This year’s festival will also features three keynote talks from:

Melanie Amna Abas, Professor of Global Mental Health

This is an occasion for networking and to inspire collaboration. You will have the opportunity not only to hear about the IoPPN’s work but also to speak with presenters during the coffee break and the reception after the event, as well as with colleagues from across the IoPPN.

The IoPPN is Europe’s largest centre for research in psychiatry, psychology, basic and clinical neuroscience and substance use disorders. It is one of the most cited institutions in the world in these fields, with multi-disciplinary expertise and strong NHS, industry and healthcare partnerships, including with the South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust, King's Health Partners, NIHR Maudsley Biomedical Research Centre and the King's Maudsley Partnership for Children and Young People.

Started in 2012 by Professor Dame Til Wykes, the event was originally known as the Institute of Psychiatry's 'Parade of Stars' and has been bringing together academic stars to share their ground-breaking work with each other.

The Research Festival, now organised by the Research & Innovation Committee, brings together researchers from all levels of career for an annual showcase of the exciting and innovative research happening across the IoPPN. It celebrates the excellence, inclusivity, collaboration and academic success that makes the IoPPN such a world-leading institution for working and studying.
