Psychology has been studied at Cambridge for over a century. The Department of Psychology provides word-class research and teaching in psychology and cognate disciplines.
Our primary goal is to understand the brain and mind across the human lifespan, in health and disease. Our principal research clusters relate to behavioural and cognitive neuroscience, and social and cognitive developmental psychology.
Cambridge owes its world-leading excellence in research and teaching to the generosity of its supporters. Our history is synonymous with a history of far-sighted benefaction, and the same is as true today as it has ever been.
Established as a charity in 1920, the Evelyn Trust makes grants to support medical research and health and wellbeing projects in Cambridgeshire. The Trust is particularly interested in research projects that have the potential to deliver transformational change, such as demonstration or pilot projects.
