A new age in brain research
Date:10/18/2011

neuroscience researcher who returned from Stanford University California to continue his research at the Melbourne Brain Centre.

Dr Emery's research focuses on the role of myelin in the brain and its role in Multiple Sclerosis.

"Being able to return to Australia and continue this important work in this fantastic Centre will assist me and my team to investigate myelin as a new treatment target to reverse the nerve damage done in MS."

Dr Rachel Hill is investigating the differences in males and females suffering Schizophrenia. She spent some time in the USA but returned to Australia to continue her research.

"The Melbourne Brain Centre offers fantastic opportunities for collaboration between researchers," she said.

"Just prior to working in the Centre, if I wanted to meet with a colleague from another laboratory it would involve quite a bit of coordination and travelling to another site. Now they might be working at the next bench in the same laboratory. Having such great access to so many talented researchers made it an easy choice to continue my research career in Melbourne," she said.

The Melbourne Brain Centre was co-funded by the Victorian Government ($53M), the Federal Government's Department ($76.8M), three project partners and philanthropy.
