Institute presentation

The Institute of Psychiatry (IoP) is Europe’s largest centre for research and post-graduate education in psychiatry, psychology, basic and clinical neuroscience. The IoP is a School of King’s College London.

World renowned for the quality of our research, for psychiatry and psychology, we are the most cited research centre outside the US, and the second most cited in the world as ranked by Thomson ISI Essential Science Indicators. In the 2008 UK Research Assessment Exercise we were judged to have the highest research power of any UK institution within the areas of psychiatry, neuroscience and clinical psychology.

Our world-class research-led learning experience attracts the very best students from around the world. Our students enjoy unrivalled learning opportunities, supported by strong partnerships with NHS Trusts, industry and healthcare organisations.

The Centre for the Cellular Basis of Behaviour (CCBB) opened in January 2007 and is part of the Department of Neuroscience at the Institute of Psychiatry. It comprises roughly 70 molecular, cellular, and behavioural neuroscientists in three principle research areas: neural stem cells, molecular neurobiology, and the neurobiology of mental health. The objectives of the CCBB are to:

  • Build the Institute’s research capacity in Basic and Clinical Neuroscience.
  • Open new areas of research into the neurobiological basis of neurodegenerative and psychiatric disease.
  • Strengthen and create collaborative opportunities with King’s Medical School.
  • Provide a focus for scientific excellence on the Denmark Hill Campus.
