About us

The development of PsyMaptic was led by Dr James Kirkbride, while a member of the EpiCentre group at the Department of Psychiatry, University of Cambridge. This work was initially conducted as part of his Sir Henry Wellcome Fellowship from the Wellcome Trust. The project was overseen by Professor Peter B. Jones, Head of the Department of Psychiatry. Dr Daniel Jackson of the MRC Biostatistics Unit at the University of Cambridge was the statistical adviser to the project.

Dr Kirkbride currently runs the PsyLife research lab in the Division of Psychiatry, UCL, London. You can view his profile here.
