The John Curtin School of Medical Research is Australia’s national medical research institute, located at ANU, the best university in Australia1. We excel in multidisciplinary, translational medical research in fields such as immunology, cancer, genomics, neuroscience, mental health, infectious diseases, obesity and metabolic disorders. Three of our researchers have received Nobel Prizes in Physiology or Medicine for work conducted here.
Students of the Master of Neuroscience programs join our world-class scientists, and have the opportunity to gain firsthand experience from their research. These programs provide science graduates with new skills, and extend and renew your understanding of neuroscience principles. You will acquire both theoretical and practical knowledge of the modern concepts in neuroscience and the methodologies employed.
We have over a dozen independent research groups working at our Eccles Institute of Neuroscience in state of-the-art facilities. This includes well-equipped laboratories, a suite of electron microscopes, a confocal scanning microscope and a protein and DNA analytical service and advanced super and parallel computing facilities. We provide staff and students with an exceptional environment for research on brain function, with a cellular focus and an emphasis on signal processing in sensory systems.
