Brain and Mind Centre network
Centres and institutes_


We represent a network of academics across Sydney and beyond working together to lead generational change

The Brain and Mind Centre aims to promote multidisciplinary collaboration between researchers from across university campuses and hospitals. To this end, we are currently building our research capacity at Westmead and Nepean.

Proud to be part of the University’s second campus

We are thrilled to collaborate with researchers at Westmead as the University of Sydney bolsters its Western Sydney Strategy there. This new collaboration will engage stakeholders from across the University and beyond, to strengthen cross-campus research initiatives and education. 

We will focus on developing partnerships with likeminded researchers, primary health care providers, non-governmental organisations, Local Health Districts, government and industry, to better facilitate evidence-based research and patient care.  

Making an impact in Sydney's outer west

We are working with researchers at Nepean Clinical School, Nepean Hospital and other relevant networks in the Penrith/Kingswood area that are strategically aligned with the Brain and Mind Centre's development goals.

This local precinct will experience tremendous growth over the next few years thanks to a $550 million Nepean Redevelopment project. Therefore Nepean Hospital will soon be able to support communities within and outside of Sydney’s western suburbs and provide world-class clinical facilities, services and clinical care. 

The Brain and Mind Centre plans to bridge the gap in knowledge and services between Sydney’s western and eastern suburbs by developing numerous cross-campus, multidisciplinary, collaborative research and education projects in neuroscience and mental health.  

We look forward to enhancing the profile and reputation of the Brain and Mind Centre across the University of Sydney campuses by partnering with some of Australia’s finest leaders in brain and mind science research.
