Program Lead

Prof Alex Fornito
E: Alex.Fornito@monash.edu

Prof Alex Fornito completed his Clinical Masters (Neuropsychology) and PhD in 2007 in the Departments of Psychiatry and Psychology at The University of Melbourne before undertaking Post-Doctoral training in the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Cambridge, UK, under the auspices of an NHMRC Training Fellowship. In 2013, Alex assumed his current position in the Monash Institute of Cognitive and Clinical Neurosciences. Alex is Co-Director of the Brain and Mental Health Research Hub and Heads the Brain research division.

Alex¹s research concentrates on developing new imaging techniques for mapping human brain connectivity and applying these methods to shed light on brain function in health and disease. A major emphasis of his work concerns understanding foundational principles of brain organisation and their genetic basis; characterising brain connectivity disturbances in psychiatric disorders such as schizophrenia; and mapping how brain networks dynamically reconfigure in response to changing task demands.
