Monash University - Melbourne, Australia  

Visited Western from April 4 - 9, 2016

Kim Cornish, Director of the Monash Institute of Cognitive and Clinical Neurosciences (MICCN) and James Bourne, from the Australian Regenerative Medicine Institute, are coming to Western to explore a partnership with Western's Brain and Mind Institute. The partnership would include such things as collaborative research projects, as well as postdoctoral, graduate student, and faculty exchanges. Monash is a member of the Group of 8 (Go8) leading Universities in Australia -- and also secured the most federal funding last year of any University in Australia. A Western-Monash partnership, between BMI and MICCN, would enormously benefit both our institutions.
