Senior Staff

On this page you will find details of senior academic staff within the Department of Psychiatry. The collaborative research approach fostered by our department means that while each member of our senior staff is usually affiliated with one main research group, their work may span across two or more such groups. These details are provided below. Clicking each person’s image will take you to their Cambridge Neurosciences profile. Contact details can be found on our staff & student A-Z.
