About us

Monash University's Department of Neuroscience is the first university academic department in Australia dedicated to developing and providing solutions for patients with neurological conditions. Established in early 2018 (see Launch details), the Department partners closely with the Alfred hospital (Melbourne, Australia).

With more than 200 clinicians, researchers and students involved across 22 critical areas of neuroscience, our pioneering research takes a bedside-to-bench-to-bedside approach to directly improve outcomes for patients. This integrated way of solving major challenges in neurological diseases is due to our strong collaborations with healthcare providers. These local, national and international partnerships give us the opportunity to work closely with clinicians and patients to translate findings from the lab into clinical trials or treatments that will have tangible health benefits for people and communities.
