UQ is championing neuroscience research, with the primary aim of understanding the fundamental mechanisms of brain function at all levels – from development to function and disease. At UQ, this is being addressed by researchers in a number of schools and faculties as well as at dedicated research facilities such as the Queensland Brain Institute (QBI). Understanding brain function requires a multifaceted approach, and at UQ this is facilitated by bringing together specialists in a range of fields, including biology, genetics, psychology and mathematics. In addition, UQ has a wide network of partners and collaborators, which includes clinicians, medical and allied health practitioners, educators and engineers. These relationships enable the translation of basic discoveries into therapeutics and tools for the treatment of disease.
