Event description

Description

Robin Murray is Professor of Psychiatric Research at The Institute of Psychiatry, King’s College London. He joins a tiny handful of psychiatrists to be honoured with a fellowship of the Royal Society throughout its long and illustrious history. Murray is currently Britain’s most highly cited psychiatry researcher, and is the third most highly cited researcher in schizophrenia in the world. He has won most of the major prizes in psychiatry and has been honoured with numerous awards in various countries.

Robin Murray and colleagues were among the first to demonstrate that prolonged heavy abuse of cannabis can contribute to the onset of psychosis, and that starting early before 15 years and using high potency cannabis particularly increase the risk. Currently, they are researching why some people are especially vulnerable to this drug while most develop no problems.

The event is only for students, ( from Imperial as well as other universities) and is a FREE ticketed event! Book your ticket now!
