Professional Development Dinner

The SOBR Network would like to thank the following organisations and institutes for their generous support:

The Ritchie Centre, MIMR-PHI Institute of Medical Research

The Ritchie Centre is a research centre in the MIMR-PHI Institute of Medical Research. We are located at Monash Medical Centre in Clayton, Melbourne, Australia. The Ritchie is a leading Australian research centre for the study of women’s and children’s health. Our scientists are working to answer the important questions about pregnancy health, fetal development, the newborn baby and women’s health. We are committed to better health for babies and women by better understanding what makes us less healthy. At the Ritchie Centre, tomorrow’s treatments are being developed today.

SOBR would also like to thank the following:

SOBR Symposium 2014

The SOBR Network would like to thank the following organisations and institutes for their generous support:

UoM Neurosciences and Behavioural Sciences Research Domain

Researchers within this Research Domain seek a basic understanding of how the nervous system develops and functions, making us human and allowing us to experience and actively participate in our world. They also seek to understand the aetiology of psychiatric and neurodegenerative conditions such as schizophrenia, drug addiction, Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases, multiple sclerosis and macular degeneration, as well as stroke, epilepsy, and spinal cord and brain injury, with the aim of developing better therapies and treatments.

The Faculty of Medicine, Dentistry and Health Sciences is a leader in neuroscience research with key personnel located within the Departments of Anatomy & Neuroscience, Psychiatry, Pathology, Psychological Sciences and Medicine (Austin and Northern Health and the Royal Melbourne and Western Hospitals). Strong collaborations exist across a number of institutions including: Bio21 Institute, the Florey Department of Neuroscience & Mental Health, the Murdoch Childrens Research Institute, National Stroke Research Institute, Brain Research Institute, Orygen Youth Health, affiliated teaching hospitals and many external organisations both within Australia and overseas.

Communication and collaboration between Neurosciences and the Psychological Sciences is encouraged and fostered through activities that provide networking opportunities and seminar programs bringing researchers together across the domain to learn about the latest research taking place in the field.
Our research in the Neurosciences and Behavioural Sciences uses the latest technologies in molecular and cell biology, bioinformatics, brain imaging and clinical studies.

Specific topics of national concern that are being addressed in this domain include: youth mental health and substance abuse and the challenge of Alzheimer’s disease and dementia in the ageing population. Researchers within the Neurosciences and Behavioural Sciences domain publish extensively, making their research results available to their peers in the scientific community. In this way, they contribute to the body of knowledge that drives translational medicine from the bench to the bedside. This research also contributes to greater support and quality of care for patients undergoing treatment, as well as informing public health policies of preventative medicine.
