Director's Welcome

Welcome to the Melbourne Neuroscience Institute (MNI), the principal body for the promotion of cross-disciplinary research in the neurosciences at the University of Melbourne. 


Through the creation of interdisciplinary research opportunities and access to world-leading technologies and applications, the MNI aims to maximise the translation of neuroscience research into clinical outcomes for University researchers and industry partners. The MNI supports, engages and facilitates high quality projects, with an emphasis on value-adding through co-ordination of effort and collaboration, and to showcase the University’s prowess in basic and clinical research in the neurosciences and related disciplines.

I invite you to become an affiliate of the Institute and to explore the website to find out more about the opportunities available through the MNI.

You are welcome to contact me if you wish to share your ideas with me or would like some further information on future projects under development. I look forward to working with you all in 2016.
