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. Our unique location in the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience supports our research into how drugs change the way we think and behave.

There is vast potential for new drugs, which need rigorous safety testing. By enabling the safe testing of novel compounds we support researchers to find out whether drugs reach their targets and how they affect brain cells. This provides vital information on the safety and effectiveness of new drugs that could dramatically improve the lives of patients.
