Logo for MiND: the markers in neuropsychiatric disorders study

healthcare professionals

we are now accepting referrals for people with cognitive, psychiatric and/or neurological symptoms, and healthy controls

researchers, students, & collaborators

we would love to hear from you and we are keen to collaborate


the ultimate goal of our research is to lead to routine, clinically available tests that would improve outcomes for people with cognitive, psychiatric and/or neurological symptoms, their families, clinicians and healthcare systems

we aim to do this by exploring the ability of biomarkers such as neurofilament light chain, and other markers, to lead to accurate, timely diagnosis of neurological, neurodegenerative and neuropsychiatric disorders

we are welcoming healthcare professionals to refer people with symptoms (and healthy controls) to our Study, for people to join our community and receive updates, and to collaborate with researchers and organisations
