Research at the HBI
Transformative, translational research is the cornerstone of the HBI. We strive to provide support to our members that will allow them to make groundbreaking discoveries and apply this new knowledge towards improvements in health.
Our priority foundational research themes are focused on areas where we can apply a critical mass of research expertise. Our members work collaboratively within three foundational research themes: Axon Biology and Regeneration; Cerebral Circulation; and Neural Systems and Behaviour.
The HBI applies research discoveries towards new ways of preventing, detecting, and treating neurological and mental health issues. The HBI supports team-based programs in four translational research programs: Multiple Sclerosis; Spinal Cord and Nerve Injury; Stroke and Vascular Dementia; and Depression and Psychosis.
