Forensic & Neurodevelopmental Science
We are one of the few teams in the world bringing together experts in brain development and antisocial behaviour. Our research team members sit on National and International steering and advisory groups (including UK government task forces on ADHD, autism and offenders). We also hold numerous project and programme grants from the EU, the MRC, the Wellcome Trust and NIH (USA).
The IoP has close links with the South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust, including the well known Bethlem Royal and Maudsley Hospitals, which makes it the largest academic community in Europe devoted to the advancement of psychiatry. We have links with several other Mental Health Trusts including high and medium secure units and forensic community teams.
Graduate research students work closely with their supervisors and enjoy regular meetings to discuss their progress. They also liaise with other members of staff with relevant research interests and are encouraged to attend and participate in departmental research presentations and other Institute seminars. There is a full induction for new graduate students on commencing their studies. Each full-time graduate research student is allocated their own workspace and computer; facilities for part-time students can be arranged according to their needs.
Training courses run by the department, the Institute or through the Graduate School can be utilised as required to provide training in a wide variety of topics, from transferable skills to academic areas directly relevant to the student's thesis.
