About us


Disorders of the brain and mind are among the greatest health challenges we face in the 21st century. These diseases are devastating for those affected, their families and society, and threaten the social and economic participation of people of all ages across the world.

The Brain and Mind Centre aims to address and reduce these impacts, through real-world and real-time multidisciplinary and collaborative research and education.

Work at the centre spans pre-clinical, clinical and translational research. It extends beyond laboratories and clinics to our strong partnerships with industry, government, the community, and other healthcare providers and researchers.


A society enriched by citizens who achieve their maximal cognitive and behavioural capacities, individually and collectively.


To make real differences to the personal and societal challenges presented by the workings of the brain and mind, through highly collaborative, multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary research and education.
