Centres & groups

National Academy for Parenting Research

Based in the Department of Child and Adolescent Mental Health at the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience, King's College, London, we are a team of psychologists, clinicians and researchers working under the direction of Professor Stephen Scott (Director of Research and Professor of Child Health and Behaviour).

PACT: Parents and Communities Together Research Group

PACT (Parents and Communities Together) is an early intervention project that provides support and information for pregnant mothers and their infants. Citizens-UK, the largest community organising charity in the UK, formed an initial alliance with local civic and statutory institutions including faith-based groups, children’s centres, and primary schools

Parkinson’s and Huntington’s diseases

Our brains change as we age, increasing the risk of neurodegenerative disorders, such as Parkinson’s and Huntington’s diseases. Neurodegenerative disorders are conditions that cause the loss or damage of brain cells and circuits with devastating results. We investigate all aspects of these diseases – from the underlying genetic causes through to how we treat patients in the clinic.

Stress, Psychiatry and Immunology Lab & Perinatal Psychiatry

In the Stress, Psychiatry and Immunology laboratory (SPI-Lab) Research Group, which includes the Perinatal Psychiatry team,we aim to understand how stress hormones and inflammatory responses regulate behaviour and participate to the therapeuticaction of psychotropic drugs.

Pharmacological imaging

We study the effect of drugs on the nervous system, vital for the development of new treatments for disorders and diseases of the central nervous system. Working closely with industry partners, we show researchers whether drugs are engaging with their targets. We also develop pioneering methodologies and analytics for collaborators. 

Centre for Population Neuroscience and Precision Medicine (PONS)

The Centre for Population Neuroscience and Precision Medicine (PONS) aims at establishing and analysing big neuroimaging genetic datasets to precisely identify brain mechanisms underlying behaviour, and their genetic and environmental mediators, thus enabling prediction and stratification of mental disorders.
