Leading the Way
Through innovative programs and the unique set of resources within the Campbell Family Mental Health Research Institute—including our world-class brain-imaging centre, genetic and molecular labs, big-data computing expertise and more—CAMH is leading in many significant fields of brain science research.
Every day, we strive to break new ground on the questions that will contribute to a greater understanding of the healthy brain, the changes associated with brain illness, and the processes taking place that cause these illnesses to progress.
Some of these questions and initiatives include:
advancing a modernized approach to mental illness that links to perspectives from the brain, the rest of the body, the social context and environment, across the lifespan
changing the view of the brain as a set of information-processing circuits
working towards correcting the scarcity of novel treatments.
