Department of Psychiatry

Our mission is to conduct world-class research, teach psychiatry to medical students, develop future researchers in our graduate programme, teach doctors in training, promote excellence in clinical practice, and develop and provide innovative clinical services.
We work in close collaboration with clinical services particularly Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust and the Oxford University Hospitals NHS Trust, with our leading clinical and translational academics providing a link with the world-class discovery science groups working in Oxford. We are committed to the translation of scientific discovery into benefits for patients. Our role is to champion our patients' interest by making basic research applicable to the causes, the diagnosis, and the treatment of disease. We use clinical and patient observation and experience to motivate and direct basic research, where it is likely to help real life problems. We have built expertise and extensive networks in a variety of research fields from molecular biology to brain imaging, from behavioural research to epidemiology, bringing together clinicians and scientists in all our research groups, and collaborating with leading experts in other departments and institutions. We have especially strong links within Oxford Neuroscience, for example with Experimental Psychology, with the Nuffield Department for Clinical Neuroscience, the Oxford Centre for Functional MRI of the Brain (FMRIB), the Oxford Centre for Human Brain Activity (OHBA), and the Centre for Evidence Based Medicine and Oxford Clinical Trials.
