Centres & groups

Brain Imaging in Babies

The Brain Imaging in Babies study (BIBS) aims to improve understanding of how a baby's brain develops from before birth up until 3-4 years of age. Working with children from a variety of backgrounds and communities, we use a combination of state of the art diagnostic tools such as MRI scans alongside traditional behavioral assessments to capture the earliest information on infant brain development.

Building brains

We investigate the cellular and molecular mechanisms involved in the formation of the nervous system. Our research focuses on brain regionalisation, tissue and cell morphogenesis, neurogenesis, neuronal fate specification and migration.

Causal Analysis & Evaluation Group

The Causal Modelling Group comprises statisticians and methodologists at King’s College London interested in drawing causal inferences from study data. Group meetings are organised by the Department of Biostatistics at the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience.

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.

Centre for Global Mental Health

The Centre for Global Mental Health (CGMH) aims to address inequities by closing the care gap, and to reduce human rights abuses experienced by people living with mental, neurological and substance use conditions, particularly in low resource settings with a view to contributing to a world where all people living with mental, neurological and substance use disorders can live a life of meaning and dignity.

Chronic pain and migraine

Headache disorders are a group of extremely common, severe and disabling disorders that includes migraine and cluster headaches. We focus on the mechanisms and management of head pain, to understand brain regions involved in headache and how we can develop novel treatment strategies.

Centre for Implementation Science

The Centre for Implementation Science is home to a team of expert implementation and improvement science researchers, including health economists and statisticians. This team are investigating how best to help ‘implement’ evidence-based practice and clinical research within health services nationally and internationally.
