The Department of Neuroscience has 17 research groups with over 140 staff and graduate research students. Thanks to infrastructure investments by Monash University and Alfred Health, during 2018 we will be opening new, purpose-built, state-of-the-art basic neuroscience laboratories, a preclinical imaging facility (with 9.4T MRI, PET-CT, FLECT and an MPI machine) and dedicated Neurological Clinical Trials Facility embedded in the Neurosciences Ward at the Alfred with capacity for overnight stays and a focus on early-stage trials.
