MRC Centre for Neuropsychiatric Genetics and Genomics

The MRC Centre for Neuropsychiatric Genetics and Genomics (MRC CNGG) brings together world-leading researchers to investigate the major causes of mental health problems.

The Centre utilises clinical, genomic, statistical and bioinformatic expertise to tackle the challenges posed by psychiatric, neurodevelopmental and neurodegenerative disorders, with the aim of informing better diagnosis and treatment for the future.

Established in 2009, they are Wales' first MRC Centre and the largest psychiatric genetics group in the UK. The centre brings together clinical, genomic, statistical and bioinformatic expertise to tackle the challenges posed by psychiatric, neurodevelopmental and neurodegenerative disorders.

The main objectives are to better understand how these disorders arise, to develop new approaches to diagnosis and to identify novel treatment targets. Ultimately, the centre aims to become a leading centre of translational neuroscience.
