Our Research

Research at MAPrc is extraordinarily diverse. Our projects range from  neuroimaging techniques that are recognised around the world for the breakthrough insights they provide into brain structure and function in health and illness, to innovative new treatments to boost the effectiveness of conventional medications for major mental illnesses. Other research streams are grassroots initiatives looking at ways to make the delivery of community mental health service more efficient and addressing the mental health aspects of problem gambling.

Our approach reflects our commitment to ‘bench to bedside’ research. Results translate directly into everyday benefits for people with mental illnesses, carers and healthcare professionals.

All our activities are guided by our mission: to conduct world-class psychiatric research with respect, equality and understanding.

MAPrc research is divided into a number of streams listed below. For further information, please see the menu links on the right.
