Transforming brain and mind health with world-leading research

The University of Sydney’s Brain and Mind Centre (BMC) brings together a network of researchers and clinicians who partner across borders and disciplines in pursuit of a common goal: to develop better treatments for conditions of the brain and mind and improve health outcomes now and for future generations.

The BMC’s multidisciplinary research teams are at the forefront of brain and mind sciences. They work to find answers to some of the world’s most pressing health concerns across the lifespan, including childhood development and behaviour disorders, youth mental health and addiction, and the ageing brain and neurodegenerative disease.

Work at the Centre extends beyond laboratories and clinics and focus’ on translation through its strong partnerships with industry, government, the community, and other healthcare providers and researchers.

Hearts & Minds is currently supporting Dr Eleanor Drummond and Prof Glenda Halliday’s research into identifying the molecular drivers of Progressive Supranuclear Palsy, a rare neurological condition, and has previously also supported Professor Ian Hickie’s leading mental health research.
