Our research

Our research themes and multidisciplinary approach.

Members of the Centre for Discovery Brain Sciences (CDBS) carry out research at molecular, cellular, systems and behavioural levels to understand fundamental mechanisms and pathways relevant to brain and body function in health and disease.

The Research Theme is investigating developmental mechanisms at molecular, genetic and cellular level.

The Research Theme is studying the cellular and circuit mechanisms underpinning nervous system functions.

The Research Theme is exploring the cellular and molecular mechanisms that underpin cell and tissue differentiation, resilience to injury, and repair processes.

The Research Theme is investigating the function and regulation of organs and tissue.

This Research Theme is trying to understand the cause of decline in the function of neuronal networks during ageing.
