Live human neuronal circuits in a dish
Our lab has established a platform in vitro to facilitate the discovery and validation of treatments for brain disorders. Our research is at the frontier of human cellular neuroscience research and translational applications that will benefit global public health.
SAHMRI Mind & Brain
Our lab is within the South Australia Health and Medical Research Institute (SAHMRI) Mind & Brain theme headed by internationally recognised leader Dr Julio Licinio in Adelaide, South Australia.
SAHMRI is a new, vibrant medical research institute, which houses 600 international scientists. The state-of-the-art research facility and cores provide an outstanding environment for scientific discoveries.
The strong collaborative research community within SAHMRI, local universities and international partners fosters an exceptional environment where scientists can thrive to the best of their creativity and productivity.
SAHMRI highly benefits from the close partnership with 3 major local universities and a total of 90,000 students: Flinders University, The University of Adelaide, The University of South Australia.
Finally, SAHMRI and our lab are essentially oriented towards translational applications. SAHMRI's location right next to the ultramodern Royal Adelaide Hospital (opening 2016) stimulates fruitful collaborations with clinicians and patients.
