About the Brain and Mind Research Institute

The University of Sydney’s Brain and Mind Research Institute (BMRI) was established to reduce the burden of disease due to brain and mind disorders through interdisciplinary, collaborative, basic, translational and clinical research, education and clinical services.

We aim to develop new procedures, technologies and medicines and to provide immediate access to the most advanced treatments for mental and neurological disorders, thereby contributing to the prevention or cure of these common, disabling disorders.

Work spans from the basic through to translational and clinical neurosciences, with collaboration between senior researchers, students, patients and front-line carers, and on the sharing of unique facilities such as the molecular imaging facility, MRI clinical imaging, fish facility, and clinics, all housed together in an environment that promotes synergy of effort and sharing of ideas.
