We host the psychosis theme of the NIHR Biomedical Research Centre
(BRC) in Mental Health, whose funding was recently renewed for five years. Prof Anthony David
is cluster lead for the BRC neuropsychiatry cluster, which includes psychosis, dementia and neurology; and the Mental Health Research Network
, a mechanism for the adoption of clinical trials around the UK. The department is involved in numerous clinical trials, both commercially and academically funded, in collaboration with the Clinical Trials Unit
. We are due to open a Clinical Research Facility in 2012, which will facilitate further expansion of our experimental medicine and translational research activity.
