Robert Galinsky

Dr Robert Galinsky is a NHMRC CJ Martin Fellow and leads a research program that spans the disciplines of developmental neuroscience & physiology, medical imaging, bioengineering & translational science.

Too much inflammation in the brain is a fundamental process that leads to impaired brain cell development and function after birth resulting in cognitive, language and movement disorders in later life. Our work focuses on how inflammation during pregnancy or shortly after birth impairs brain cell development and function and studies how anti-inflammatory interventions could help restore healthy brain development. Our vision is to develop therapies that target the key inflammatory pathways that impair healthy brain development so that we can reduce the incidence and severity of disability.

Dr Robert Galinsky is accepting graduate students applications (Honours / Masters / PhD).
