Research at the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience
The Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology & Neuroscience (IoPPN) is the premier centre for mental health and related neurosciences research in Europe.
We are the world’s second most cited institution carrying out psychiatry and psychology research with 21 of the most highly cited scientists in this field in the world.
The IoPPN is a flourishing and expanding faculty of King’s College London and is one of the top 25 higher education institutions in the world, as ranked in the QS World University Rankings, with multidisciplinary expertise across disorders, across departments and with strong partnerships with the South London & Maudsley (SLaM) and King’s College Hospital NHS Foundation Trusts.
Being part of an Academic Health Science Centre - King’s Health Partners - brings us into a stronger and unique partnership where both mental health and physical care come under the same umbrella, allowing us to further expand our research perspectives. Our NIHR Maudsley Biomedical Research Centre in partnership with SLaM, the largest mental health trust in the country, provides us with an advantageous position in translational research.
Our research agenda is entering a new phase of growth and development as we embrace the new opportunities that are arising from our developing partnerships, invest strategically in areas highlighted as local and national priorities, and make full use of emerging technologies and fantastic research facilities such as the NIHR/Wellcome Trust King's Clinical Research Facility and the Maurice Wohl Clinical Neuroscience Institute.
This is an exciting time to work here and we look forward to welcoming excellent new talent to work with us to fully embrace these rich opportunities.
