The Maurice Wohl Clinical Neuroscience Institute is set to be one of Europe’s leading centres for interdisciplinary neuroscience research. Located at the heart of King’s College London’s Denmark Hill campus, it will be home to a unique cluster of neuroscience excellence.
The Institute will be the key research facility in our efforts to fast-track new treatments to patients affected by disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, motor neurone disease, epilepsy and stroke, while strengthening the College’s portfolio of internationally recognised brain research.
The new 7,600-square-metre Institute will bring together 250 clinicians and scientists to advance our understanding of disease mechanisms and develop new therapies for neurological and psychiatric disorders through innovative research.
It will facilitate cooperation between researchers across multiple disciplines, academic institutions and healthcare organisations to dramatically accelerate the translation of basic research into clinical practice. Completion is planned for late 2014.
South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust provides the widest range of NHS mental health services in the UK.
