Description of the organization
The University of Nottingham is one of the UK's leading research universities and was ranked among the top 7 UK Universities on research power in the most recent Research Assessment Exercise (RAE 2008). The Times Higher World Rankings in 2008 placed Nottingham in the top 1% of all universities worldwide. The University is currently actively collaborating with over 300 research and industrial partners across the whole of Europe. The Division of Psychiatry is in the leading group of research‐led psychiatry departments in the UK. It holds major grants from Research Councils, leading UK charities and governmental sources. It has particular strengths in multi‐disciplinary population studies, social psychiatry and epidemiology and evaluations of innovative health care interventions. The Section of Developmental Psychiatry is a leading child and adolescent mental health research centre in the UK (total grant income over £1 million in the last RAE cycle) and has an international reputation for delivering high quality research. Key research areas include ADHD, early onset psychosis/schizophrenia and Tourette Syndrome using methodologies including developmental epidemiology, cognitive neuroscience/ neuroimaging and translational health services research. The University of Nottingham has close links with the National Health Service (NHS) and has established the Nottingham Institute of Mental Health in partnership with local NHS Trusts to implement evidence based practice and innovative health service research. The Section of Developmental Psychiatry provides leadership of ADHD services for a population of 1 million people in the East Midlands region of England.
The WP7 lead (Professor Chris Hollis) has extensive experience as principal investigator of managing large collaborative ADHD and neurodevelopmental research projects. These projects funded by the Wellcome Trust, PPP Medical Foundation, Medical Research Council and National Institute of Health Research, have both recruited clinical samples and conducted secondary analyses of UK population based databases. Professor Hollis has wide experience in the field of child and adolescent psychopharmacology and was pharmacology lead for the 2008 NICE ADHD Guideline.
