NIMHANS-National Institute for Mental Health Neurosciences

NIMHANS is a multidisciplinary Institute for patient care and academic research into mental health and neurosciences. It is an Institute of National Importance and one of India’s largest neurology centres.

A strategic partnership between University of Liverpool and NIMHANS was established ten years ago, with an Memorandum of Understanding first signed in 2012 and extended for a further 5 years in 2017.

The relationship with Liverpool is two-fold and led by Professor Tom Solomon who leads the collaboration on brain infections. Additionally the partnership has a mental health focus with collaborations led in Liverpool by Professor Helen Sharp.  The partnership includes an active dual PhD programme. Joint workshops take place annually to agree priorities and explore new lines of research, with the University of Liverpool and NIMHANS having been awarded several Newton and GCRF grants.
