BiographyRobin Murray is a Professor at the Institute of Psychiatry, King's College London, and has spent most of his working life there apart from one year at NIMH in the USA. His particular interest is in understanding the causes of psychosis. He and his colleagues have contributed to the understanding that environmental factors such as obstetric events, heavy cannabis use and migration increase the risk of developing schizophrenia-like psychoses. Professor Murray is also involved in testing new treatments for psychotic illnesses and he looks after people with psychosis at the South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust. According to ESI ScienceWatch, he is the second most frequently cited psychiatrist in the world outside the USA. He has supervised 35 PhDs/MDs and 28 of his students have become professors.
