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 collaborate with communities, industry partners, government, community groups and treatment providers to apply our research in the real world, through policy and practice.
The ForeFront Ageing and Neurodegeneration team is committed to discovering early detection methods, identifying new treatments and understanding the underlying mechanisms of neurodegenerative disease.
Our sleep and circadian biology team focuses on improving our understanding of how changes to our sleep and body rhythms effect diseases of the brain. We're examining interventions for sleep-wake disturbances to improve brain health.
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.
