Welcome to Brain Research New Zealand – A Centre of Research Excellence
Through world-class research, improved clinical practice, training, and public education, we are working hard to combat ageing-related brain disorders and lessen their impact on individuals, their whanau, and New Zealand as a whole.
Our vision? Lifelong brain health for all New Zealanders.
By uniting New Zealand’s best neuroscientists and clinicians, and working in partnership with the community, here’s what we aim to achieve:
Better health outcomes for older people through community partnerships and communication of our research.
National and international recognition of our research and expertise.
PREVENTION, DETECTION & TREATMENTS
Improved strategies to prevent, detect and slow the progression of age-related neurological disorders.
Improved clinical practice by translating scientific knowledge into treatments, strategies and care pathways.
Increased scientific, clinical, translational and leadership capabilities.
Improved Māori health and wellbeing during ageing, incorporating Matauranga into research, and training Māori neuroscientists and clinicians.
