About

Neuro Mental Health and Dementia Research Unit, led by Dr Nadeeka Dissanayaka, facilitates a pipeline of clinical research programs to meet the increasing demands of our growing ageing population and age-related progressive brain diseases such as Dementia and Parkinson’s disease.

Our focus is to find better treatment, and improve quality of life and quality of care for those afflicted by incurable brain diseases, and their families.

We use neuroimaging techniques, technological personalised medicine approaches, and conduct clinical trials. Our multidisciplinary collaborative team includes Neuroscientists (cognitive neurosciences and signal processing experts), Digital Health Experts (information technology, data science, and software engineering), Medical Officers (Neurologists, Psychiatrists, and Geriatricians), and Allied Health Professionals (Clinical Psychologists, Neuropsychologists, Speech Pathologists, and Physiotherapists). Our strategic framework is supported by established partnerships with national and international public and private health care providers, and the Residential Aged Care industry.
