The UCL Division of Psychiatry is within the Faculty of Brain Sciences and a centre of excellence in Mental Health research. The Director is Professor Glyn Lewis. Our aim is to contribute to the improvement of mental health through research and education. We address clinical problems in order to achieve benefits for patients and public health, using insights from basic science. We also deliver innovative teaching, relevant to clinical practice, which is informed by our research.
The Division has multi-disciplinary research and teaching staff based in the Bloomsbury Campus of UCL. The Division is one of the largest departments specialising in mental health in the UK with over 150 staff. It has an active research programme with funding from NIHR, MRC, ESRC and medical charities including the Wellcome Trust and Alzheimer’s UK. Our research programme is wide ranging and has strengths that include epidemiology, randomised controlled trials, health services research and molecular genetics and includes research into psychosis, depression and intellectual disability (https://www.ucl.ac.uk/psychiatry). There is considerable potential within UCL to develop collaborations with outstanding scientists from other disciplines. We encourage joint projects within and outside our Faculty and this provides exciting opportunities for applying novel ideas and methods to psychiatric problems.
