MNI Research Themes

The Melbourne Neuroscience Institute provides support to research that both enhances the current objectives of extant endeavors and which takes advantage of new, emergent and strategic opportunities. These research themes have been identified because they are already acknowledged major strengths of University-based neuroscience research and of key affiliates. They are areas that we seek to enhance through collaborative interaction given that the University, as a whole, has great breadth in research capacity across its Faculties in these thematic areas, and naming them will improve the clarity of the University’s strategic positioning around them.
