The learning disabilities research group is multi-disciplinary and includes senior academics from psychiatry, psychology and sociology. The group undertakes four main areas of research.

The group has close academic links with other disciplines at both the University of Cambridge and at other academic centres.

Its PhD students come from a range of disciplines including psychology, psychiatry, molecular biology, geography, sociology and social anthropology.
