Our Mission / Objective

The Florey Institute of Neuroscience and Mental Health is committed to improving lives through brain research. We will continue to lead brain research with commitment and passion, integrity and rigour, through innovation and excellence, collaboration and teamwork.

Our Services

The Florey is home to some of the world’s most advanced scientific equipment and services.

We are located in the heart of the medical research precinct in Parkville, opposite the Royal Melbourne Hospital and in Heidelberg, adjacent to Austin Health.

These facilities serve researchers from the Florey, The University of Melbourne, other universities, government research agencies and industry. All platforms operate on a fee for services basis for all services and facility access.

Our Beneficiaries

The Florey Institute of Neuroscience and Mental Health is the largest brain research group in the Southern Hemisphere.

Our teams work on a range of serious diseases including stroke, epilepsy, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, Huntington’s disease, motor neurone disease, traumatic brain and spinal cord injury, depression, schizophrenia, mental illness and addiction. We are world leaders in imaging technology, stroke rehabilitation and epidemiological studies.

Research of the brain and its diseases has gained considerable momentum internationally. Many scientific and technological advancements have been made, and much of our work has been centre stage. Our scientific home is a hive of activity with researchers coming from around the globe to work at the Florey.

State and Federal Governments, major philanthropic foundations and many generous private benefactors have recognised the importance of neuroscience as the final frontier in medical research.

Projects in Progress

Our research is segmented into nine divisions where our scientists research a range of disorders:

Behavioural Neuroscience – addiction, schizophrenia, Rett Syndrome, Williams Syndrome, cognitive neuroscience, autism, Huntington’s disease, depression.

Brain Development & Regeneration – brain development, traumatic brain injury, stroke.

Epilepsy – epilepsy imaging, human brain structure and function, ion channells and disease, neurobiology of epilepsy.

Imaging – neuroimaging, MRI development, neuroinformatics.

Mental Health – Alzheimer’s disease, bipolar disorder, depression, and schizophrenia

Multiple sclerosis.

Neurodegeneration – neurogenetics, Motor neuron disease, Parkinson’s disease, neuropharmacology.

Neuropeptides.

Stroke – basic sciences, imaging and ultrasound, public health and epidemiology, neuro-rehabilitation and recovery, AVERT – early intervention.

Systems Neurophysiology – brain regulation of body temperature; treatment of heart attack and heart failure; physiological changes in epilepsy.

How to help us

Wills and Bequests

Bequests from our founders, staff and community supporters have created buildings and laboratories, supported research, and established student scholarships, bursaries and prizes.

  • Bequests to general research allow the Director to apply it to the most appropriate project and/or pressing need. They are placed into an endowment fund, thereby growing and delivering income in perpetuity.
  • A bequest can create named Fellowships and Scholarships which develop promising young scientists whilst honouring you or a loved one.
  • Bequests to specific research areas are spent at the time they are received, maybe to buy major new pieces of equipment or support a promising young scientist.

If you have already made a bequest to the Florey in your Will, please let us know so that we can thank you and invite you to join other bequestors as a member of The Brains Trust. We will keep you informed of our research achievements and we can ensure that your wishes are carried out and provide the greatest benefit to our research in the future.
