David Nutt is the Edmond J. Safra Professor of Neuropsychopharmacology and director of the Neuropsychopharmacology Unit in the Division of Brain Sciences, Imperial College London.

His research focuses on the use of PET and fMRI imaging to understand how drugs work in the brain and the mechanism underpinning psychiatric disorders particularly addiction and anxiety disorders.

In 2010 The Times Eureka science magazine voted Professor Nutt one of the 100 most important figures in British Science, and the only psychiatrist in the list.
