Our access to innovative research platforms means that we can replicate real-world settings and access new technologies, enabling new ways of doing research and delivering the most appropriate and effective solutions.
One of the ways that we are achieving this is through our most recent research clinic, BrainPark.
Established in 2018, BrainPark is a world-first neuroscience research clinic dedicated to creating healthy habits, brain and lifestyles through neuroscience. The clinic was made possible through a gift from the David Winston Turner Endowment Fund with support from its host School (Monash Psychological Sciences), host Platform (Monash Biomedical Imaging) and the University.
Below are our other research platforms and centres.
Cooperative Research Centre (CRC) for Alertness, Safety and Productivity
The objective of the CRC is to reduce the financial and human costs to the community of sleep disorders. The CRC is developing new tools and products to improve alertness, increase productivity and enhance safety. Further information: http://www.alertnesscrc.com
ARC Centre of Excellence for Integrative Brain Function
The Centre of Excellence for Integrative Brain Function is addressing one of the greatest scientific challenges of the 21st century – to understand how the brain works. We investigate complex functions such as attention, prediction and decision-making, which require the coordination of information processing by many areas of the brain. We use a highly collaborative approach involving neurobiologists, cognitive scientists, engineers and physicists, allowing us to translate our discoveries into novel technologies for the social and economic benefit of all Australians.
