Our research centres & groups

Addictions Service User Research Group (SURG)

Within the Addictions Department, we work closely with our own Service User Research Group (SURG). The central aim of the SURG is to build meaningful and reciprocal relationships between addiction researchers and service users when thinking through research problems, designing studies, preparing grant applications and ultimately conducting and disseminating research. Addiction researchers benefit from having expert service users on hand to advise on their studies and group members benefit from research training, access to cutting edge information on emerging drug treatments, and some work experience.

ADHD and Associated Disorders – Asherson & Kuntsi

Our research focuses on attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and neurodevelopmental and psychiatric disorders that often co-occur with ADHD. We take a developmental approach, studying the disorders and traits from childhood to adulthood.

Based in the Addictions Department, the Section of Alcohol Research is led by Professor Colin Drummond and comprises a multidisciplinary research team.
