NeuroGenE is the Global Initiative in Neuropsychiatric Ethics based at the University of Oxford. We conduct global multidisciplinary research and capacity-building on the ethics of diagnosis, prevention, and interventions relating to psychiatric and neurodevelopmental disorders. We have partnerships with bioethicists, social scientists, and scientists around the world, with a focus on Low and Middle Income Countries (LMICs).
NeuroGenE puts young people at the heart of research on neurodevelopmental disorders. We work continuously with the Global Young Leaders for Mental Health, a group we developed as part of the Lancet Commission on Global Mental Health. Our child and adolescent-focused research projects organise young people’s advisory groups (YPAGs) to work with us around the world, to enable responsible, relevant, and accessible mental health interventions. Our work supports the potential for global neuro-innovations to change the lives of people with psychiatric and neurodevelopmental conditions.
