The Healthy Brain and Mind Research Centre (HBMRC) aims to advance knowledge critical to improving mental health, participation and well-being.
Mental health, brain-related, and developmental disorders have significant negative impacts upon the mortality and social participation of the most vulnerable members of the community and are among the most urgent global challenges of the 21st century.
The Centre comprises of 35 members which includes 15 staff members and over 20 research students at Honours, Masters and PhD level. We are a multi-disciplinary team who make significant contributions to mental health, participation and well-being by integrating cutting edge research expertise and technology spanning neuroscience, addiction science, clinical psychology, developmental psychology and rehabilitation science to improve the understanding, prevention and treatment of mental health, brain-related and developmental disorders.
HBMRC brings together three programs of research excellence in mental health, addiction neuroscience, and disability and development:
We welcome enquiries from high-quality honour’s, master’s or PhD research candidates to undertake projects in our research areas.
