As the largest integrated brain centre in Canada and a world leader in neuroscience research, the Djavad Mowafaghian Centre for Brain Health brings together experts in the fields of neuroscience, neurology, psychiatry and rehabilitation into a single hub for research, training and clinical care. Researchers work with state-of-the-art technology to advance brain health knowledge, with the aim of understanding the brain through all stages of life in an effort to prevent and treat brain diseases and help individuals maintain good cognitive health.
Researchers work in collaboration with clinicians, health professionals and community partners to move research from the bench to the bedside in order to translate research into patient care and therapies. Researchers at the Centre have been organized into five integrated research programs which reflect strength and expertise. The programs are: brain development and neurodevelopmental disorders, mental health and addictions, brain injury and repair, learning/memory and dementia, and sensory/motor systems and disorders. Research in these areas will advance understanding of Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, Huntington's disease, multiple sclerosis, mood disorders, amyotropic lateral sclerosis, stroke and neurotrauma.
