King’s has an outstanding reputation for providing world-class teaching and cutting-edge research.
The Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology & Neuroscience (IoPPN) is Europe’s largest centre for research and postgraduate education in psychiatry, psychology, basic and clinical neuroscience. IoPPN is world-renowned for the quality of its research and, for psychiatry and psychology, is the most cited research centre outside the US and the second most cited research centre in the world – as ranked by Thomson ISI Essential Science Indicators. The Social, Genetic and Developmental Psychiatry (SGDP) Centre is an interdisciplinary research centre. The academics within the Centre are extraordinarily diverse, with multi-disciplinary expertise across psychiatry, developmental and social psychology, psychopathology, personality and cognitive traits, statistical genetics, epigenetics, molecular genetics, behavioural genetics and neuroimaging. Our links with clinicians and clinical medicine enable us to maximise the impact of our research for clinical practice and public health policy.
The Department of Biostatistics and Health Informatics (BHI) has been a major force in the development of quantitative methodology as applied to mental health research, with significant national and international collaborations, and with growing impact into all areas of medicine particularly through expertise in trials and software development.
