News from the Florey Institute of Neuroscience and Mental Health

Dear <<First Name>>,

We are proud to share our latest research into healthy brain aging, as well as updates on our work in Parkinson’s disease and schizophrenia in the Spring edition of Brain Matters.

I am pleased to let you know that our researchers, students and support staff have remained connected and committed to our important mission to solve the greatest brain and mind challenges of our time throughout the year. 

In fact, you may have seen in the media recently how a team of our neuroscientists and clinicians are examining the potential link between COVID-19 and increased risk of Parkinson’s disease, and developing measures to get ahead of this. We look forward to providing you with more information on this groundbreaking work before the end of the year.

We are most grateful for your ongoing support which is enabling our research to continue despite the challenges we have all faced this year.

Thank you for your support. Together, we are making a difference. 

Warmest wishes,


Professor Steven Petrou PhD FAHMS
Director | The Florey Institute of Neuroscience and Mental Health
