We are delighted to introduce Bryan Paton, Research Fellow. Bryan is a neuroscientist with a deep interest in the function and structure of the brain. His academic background is in engineering, psychology and philosophy.

Researchers Victor Puelles Rodriguez, Roger Evans, Bill Mulley, David Nikolic-Paterson, Peter Kerr, John Bertram, James Pearson, Nicholas Ferris, and Parnesh Raniga at Monash Biomedical Imaging are using new MRI technologies for studying transplanted kidneys. 

Researchers from the Brain and Psychological Sciences Research Centre (BPsyC) at Swinburne University of Technology are currently running a clinical trial looking for abnormalities in the brains of people with body dysmorphic disorder (BDD).

The Melbourne Neuroscience Institute (MNI) is offering a competitive Interdisciplinary Seed Funding Scheme for grants of $10-000 to $40,000 to support interdisciplinary research projects in the field of neuroscience and related disciplines.

The purpose of this funding is to provide short-term (up to one year) support for highly innovative seed projects that will lead to new collaborations and research teams, and which have significant potential for future funding by the NHMRC, ARC or commercial entities.

The NIH and NHMRC have agreed to cooperate in the BRAIN Initiative involving Australian and U.S. scientists. NHMRC is considering supporting Australian researchers for the following BRAIN Initiative funding opportunity:

"Foundations of human brain imaging bridging scales and modalities"

NHMRC is providing this early advice to give researchers sufficient time to pursue collaborations with U.S. colleagues.

More information is expected in September 2015
