The Brain and Mind Centre pools together a vast collective of expertise to create large-scale research teams addressing child development, youth mental health, and ageing and neurodegeneration.
We work with children and their families to prevent, treat and cure a wide range of conditions. Our clinical work is supported by great research generated by our interdisciplinary team and strong working partnerships.
The youth mental health and technology team puts young people at the centre of their own care. We partner with health services to develop innovative treatments for those aged 12-25 with emerging mental health disorders.
The Lambert Initiative was founded in 2015, the outcome of an unprecedented pledge of $33.7 million to the University of Sydney by Barry and Joy Lambert.
Our neuroimmunology team focuses on improving our understanding of neurological and psychiatric diseases. It has become clear that many of these diseases are associated with a dysregulation of the immune system.
We strive to better understand the psychology of gambling and minimise gambling-related harms in the community. We collaborate with consumers, industry partners, government and NGOs to apply our research in the real world.
The Brain and Mind Centre's Early- Career Research Development Initiative invests in early-career researchers in brain and mind sciences to foster personal and professional success.
