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.
Our multidisciplinary research teams are leading the way in developing preventative and diagnostic tools and treatments for diseases such as Dementia, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, Multiple Sclerosis, Motor Neurone Disease and Ménière’s.
Our translational research group investigates the impact of chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy (CIPN) in Australia. We work to identify the best tools to measure CIPN and design interventions to treat and prevent this condition.
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.
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.
