Our teams partner across borders and disciplines in pursuit of a common goal: the development of better treatments for conditions of the brain and mind, improving health outcomes now and for future generations.
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 University of Sydney’s Brain and Mind Centre takes a patient-centred approach to understanding and treating conditions of the brain and mind. We bring people together, integrating our clinical practice and research to pioneer new systems of care.
We are a global leader in research and treatment. In particular, we focus on conditions that affect child development, youth mental health and brain ageing. We aim to understand individual circumstances and to develop solutions that improve the quality of life for both patients and their loved ones.
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.
