Inspired by the vision “Healthy Brains for Better Lives”, the strategic goals of the HBI are to make key internationally recognized scientific discoveries and to advance clinical research in neuroscience and mental health. To achieve this goal, the HBI has created a Neurotechnology Framework, which aligns research within the three themes of Brain & Behaviour, Neural Injury & Repair, and Healthy Brain Aging. Each theme is composed of Brain and Mental Health Teams organized in a translational continuum, which includes basic, clinical, population and public health researchers. The teams build on a springboard environment of technologies (including a recent investment in MR guided-focused ultrasound), core facilities and support programs that allow them to pursue their research goals. This highly enriched environment is ideally suited to foster research excellence.
