About us

The Medical Research Council Centre for Neuro­developmental Disorders at King’s College London opened in November 2016 and is directed by Professor Oscar Marín. The Centre brings together world-leading researchers engaged in identifying the biological mechanisms that under­lie developmental brain disorders. Our mission is to translate this knowledge into the clinical advances that will change the lives of all those affected.
