Robin Murray has seen patients and studied mental illness since the early 1970s, for most of that time in London. A leader in European schizophrenia research and care, Murray currently is professor of psychiatry at the Institute of Psychiatry at Maudsley Hospital, Kings College, and University of London; and consultant psychiatrist at the Maudsley.
Murray's research interests range widely, but he is perhaps best known for helping establish the neurodevelopmental hypothesis of Schizophrenia and for environmental risk factors for schizophrenia such as obstetric events and cannabis use. At the Psychosis Research Group, the largest of its kind at any center outside the U.S., Murray oversees a group of more than 100 researchers working in epidemiology, molecular genetics, neuropsychiatry, neuroimaging, neurodevelopment, neuropharmacology and related fields. Murray also runs a clinical team at the National Psychosis Unit.
