Florey Institute of Neuroscience and Mental Health

The Florey Institute of Neuroscience and Mental Health is the largest brain research group in the Southern Hemisphere.

The Florey Institute of Neuroscience and Mental Health is one of the world's leading brain research centres. At the Florey we employ more than 500 staff and educate in excess of 100 post-graduate students each year. Our scientists comprise the largest neuroscience research team in Australia.

Our teams work on a range of serious diseases including stroke, epilepsy, Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, Huntington's disease, motor neuron disease, traumatic brain and spinal cord injury, depression, schizophrenia, mental illness and addiction. We are world leaders in imaging technology, stroke rehabilitation and epidemiological studies.

Over the past 10 years research of the brain and its diseases has gained considerable momentum internationally. Many scientific and technological advancements have been made, and much of our work has been centre stage. Our scientific home is a hive of activity with researchers coming from around the globe to work at the Florey.

State and Federal Governments, major philanthropic foundations and many generous private benefactors have recognised the importance of neuroscience as the final frontier in medical research, and they are helping the Florey and its partners build two state-of-the-art research facilities, one at the University of Melbourne in Parkville and the other at the Austin Hospital in Heidelberg costing in excess of $200 million.
