UK Dementia Research Institute

The UK Dementia Research Institute is the UK’s single biggest investment in dementia research. Revolutionary in scale and scope, it will transform dementia research in the UK.

Developmental Neuroimaging

Our research uses neuroimaging, neurocognitive, and psychopharmacological methods to better understand ADHD and related child psychiatric disorders as well as normal brain development from childhood to adulthood. Furthermore, we use neurotherapeutics such as fMRI-Neurofeedback and brain stimulation to develop novel brain-based treatment for these disorders.

Developmental Psychopathology Lab

In the Developmental Psychopathology Lab, we investigate how stressful environments exacerbate underlying genetic vulnerabilities to affect children’s development. We are particularly interested in the impact of psychopathology in caregivers (and associated risks) on children’s antisocial behaviour, and the relative role of prenatal and postnatal risk exposures.

Diabetes, Psychiatry, & Psychology Research Group

The group is part of the Psychological Medicine Department at the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology & Neuroscience (IoPPN) and Diabetes Clinical Academic Groups of King's Health Partners (KHP) crossing the interface between psychiatry and medicine.

Domestic Violence and Abuse in the Miltary

Blank spaceThe first of its kind in the UK, our cutting-edge research aims to improve understanding of domestic violence and abuse (DVA) perpetration and victimisation among military personnel and their partners.
