About Brain Research New Zealand - Rangahau Roro Aotearoa

Brain Research New Zealand - Rangahau Roro Aotearoa (BRNZ) is a national Centre of Research Excellence (CoRE) undertaking ground-breaking research on the ageing-brain and ageing-related neurological disorders. We are a collection of leading neuroscientists and clinicians from across the New Zealand who are working alongside community organisations to combat disorders of the ageing brain. Conditions such as stroke, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s disease and sensory loss pose the greatest medical and social challenge of our generation. Our interdisciplinary approach, founded on excellence and innovation, is the driver for undertaking research that will be translatable to the clinical setting, with the ultimate aim of improving brain health for all New Zealanders in the years to come.

Brain Research New Zealaland is co-hosted by the University of Auckland and the University of Otago, in collaboration with the University of Canterbury and Auckland University of Technology.
