Institute presentation

UCL (University College London) is one of UK’s premier universities and a world-class research and teaching institution based in London, whose staff and former students have included 21 Nobel Prize winners. Founded in 1826, UCL was the first university in England to admit students regardless of race, religion or gender. It continues to thrive on the creativity and diversity of its community which today comprises 8,000 staff, and 12,000 undergraduates and 7,000 graduate students from 140 countries across the globe.

In partnership with Great Ormond Street Hospital and as part of UCL, the Institute of Child Health is the leading British academic research institution for child health and has an international reputation in many areas of child health including neurodevelopmental disorders. Examples of external recognition for our work include the maximum Grade 5*A that was awarded to ICH in the 2001 HEFCE Research Assessment Exercise, one of only four in clinical sciences.

University College London and Great Ormond Street Hospital have been undertaking research on numerous aspects of Tourette syndrome, including clinical, genetic, epidemiological and basic research for many years, and has achieved a high profile in this area. This has been closely linked with the clinical experience of a very large clinical service for patients with this disorder and included collaboration with clinicians and scientists from other areas.
