Exciting news for BDRN

We would like to update you about some exciting developments for BDRN. For many years BDRN has been a close collaboration between members of the team based at Cardiff University and the University of Birmingham.

We are very pleased to announce that our Mood Disorders Research Group based in Birmingham has recently moved to the University of Worcester. The work of BDRN will continue exactly as before, with the teams at Cardiff and now Worcester working closely together.

The only change for you will be to use our new contact details for the University of Worcester, which you will find at the bottom of this page.

Our contact details at Cardiff are unchanged but you can also find these below for your convenience.

Everyone at BDRN is very excited about the move and we will tell you more about our work at the University of Worcester in our 2016 newsletter and in upcoming news articles. In the meantime, we would like to share with you a few messages:

I am absolutely delighted. The University of Worcester is providing superb support for Professor Lisa Jones and her team. I have no doubt that this will make the collaboration with Professor Ian Jones and his team in Cardiff even more effective. This is great news for BDRN, our research and our participants.
