The Virtual Reality Lab (VR Lab) is a world-leading multidisciplinary group dedicated to VR based research, assessment and treatments to improve mental health, enhance well-being and promote resilience. Our work spans across different groups and conditions and integrates VR with other technologies including wearable devices, AI and mHealth applications.

The VR Lab is led by Dr Matteo Cella with the support of Dr Clem Edwards (incubated projects), Dr Tom Ward (PPI and transdiagnostic projects) and Jerome Di Pietro (lead VR developer)
