Centres & groups

King's Health Economics

King's Health Economics, led by Professor Paul McCrone (Director) and Professor Sarah Byford (Deputy Director), consists of a team of health economists with expertise in designing and conducting high quality economic evaluations of healthcare programmes and policies. The results of our work contribute to policy-making and healthcare practice in UK and abroad, and we promote the use of rigorous evaluation techniques through a programme of teaching and training.

Health Inequalities Research Group

Health Inequalities Research Group is focused on discrimination and other forms of social adversity; community mental health; inequalities in mental health and health services.

Health Psychology Section

Health Psychology Section is a global leading centre of clinical health psychology at King's College London

Health Psychology section

The Health Psychology section at the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience has been influential in the evolution of Health Psychology as a discipline in the UK.  We are internationally recognised for excellence in research and teaching, benefitting from collaborations within the IoPPN, a world renowned research centre for Psychology, Psychiatry and Neuroscience, as well as with the KCL School of Medicine and Life Sciences, the Dental Institute, and the School of Nursing and Midwifery. This inter-disciplinary practice is also demonstrated by clinical and research partnerships with King's Health Partners. 

Healthy ageing

We are committed to a long and healthy life for all. Knowing what keeps us healthy can play a major role in finding new treatments for age-related diseases. Many diseases of age involve the progressive loss of brain tissue due to changes in the structure of proteins in cells. We investigate the effect of factors such as diet, exercise and environment on long-term brain health.

Hearing and sensory systems

Our focus is on age-related hearing loss, and we aim to find new drug targets to slow down or stop its progression, to improve the quality of life for our ageing population. Our other areas of research into sensory systems include mechanisms involved in gut sensing and the role of the thalamus in sensory processing.

Human imaging

Changes in brain structure and function are associated with conditions such as epilepsy, stroke and psychosis. Neuroscientists and clinicians want to understand what is happening in these, and other, psychiatric and neurological disorders.
