The Institute of Psychiatry (IoP) is a postgraduate medical school associated with the South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust, and is a School of King's College London (KCL) of the University of London. The IOP is the largest academic community in Europe for Psychiatry, Clinical Psychology and Neuroscience and ranks within the top five psychiatric research institutions worldwide.
As a partnership between the MRC (Medical Research Council) and the IoP, the Social, Genetic and Developmental Psychiatry Centre is a unique multi-disciplinary centre that studies social epidemiology, child and adult psychiatry, developmental psychopathology, development in the family, personality traits, cognitive abilities, statistical genetics, and molecular genetics. This unparalleled approach has inspired and nurtured collaborative research between the different departments within the Institute of Psychiatry and demonstrated its impressive multifaceted expertise.
