Centre for Brain Research

Our people

Working together to improve lives


He aha te mea nui o te Ao? He tangata, he tangata, he tangata

'What is the most important thing? It is people, it is people, it is people'

The CBR exists to increase our understanding of the brain, including the development of new treatments for brain disease. At the heart of our Centre are 68 teams and approximately 400 researchers from several schools across the University of Auckland.

Our synergistic and collaborative approach to research seeks to produce and translate novel findings from the laboratory through to the clinic and the patients.
