The Cambridge Centre for Neuropsychiatric Research

The Bahn laboratory is conducting an extensive research program to define the molecular basis of major neuropsychiatric disorders. Our focus is on schizophrenia, bipolar affective disorder, major depressive disorder and autistic and anxiety spectrum disorders. The internationally recognized scientific team is supported by state of the art laboratory facilities at the Department of Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology, Cambridge. The Cambridge Centre for Neuropsychiatric Research (CCNR), under the direction of Prof Sabine Bahn conducts and coordinates fundamental and applied research into the causes and treatment of major neuropsychiatric disorders, focusing on biomarkers and novel target discovery with the mission to translate research findings from the bench to the patient bedside. Following its foundation in 2004 the Bahn lab has received the second largest centre grant awarded by the Stanley Medical Research Institute (SMRI) and has continually attracted support and interest from prominent pharmaceutical companies and clinical partners around the world.
