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 The MiND Study 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

The MiND Study is led by Professor Dennis Velakoulis and Dr Dhamidhu Eratne, and Neuropsychiatry, The Royal Melbourne Hospital, Australia, working with a growing list of fantastic national and international collaborators

we are welcoming referrals from healthcare professionals, for people with symptoms, and healthy controls. we also welcome people to join our community and receive updates, and to collaborate with researchers and organisations
