Crack the Brain's Code
Our aim is to establish an Australian Brain Initiative that will create advanced industries in neurotechnology, develop treatments for debilitating brain disorders, and produce high-impact transdisciplinary collaborations that will increase our understanding of the brain.
Australia's Jobs of the Future?
It's not rocket science. It's brain science.
Brains at the Dome
This one-day workshop will feature presentations and panel discussion with senior representatives from each of the international brain science initiatives, along with Australian brain scientists and representatives from Australian and international neurotechnology and industry groups.

Our Mission

Understanding the human brain is one of the greatest challenges of our time and we are on the cusp of a revolution in brain sciences.

Our mission is to establish an Australian Brain Initiative that will create advanced industries in neurotechnology, develop treatments for debilitating brain disorders, and produce high-impact collaborations that will increase our understanding of the brain.

 

The Initiative

An Australian Brain Initiative will help us make major advances in understanding healthy, optimal brain function, and create advanced industries based on this unique understanding.

This will also help us identify the causes of debilitating brain disorders, and develop the treatments that we need to improve the lives of sufferers.

If we fail to make a strategic national investment in brain sciences, Australia will fall behind while the rest of the world takes advantage of the commercial, medical, educational and electronic advances that will be based on brain research.
