The new Brain Recovery Clinic at The University of Auckland Clinics is set to advance the treatment of brain injuries and neurological conditions, bringing together scientists and doctors.
As part of our Centre for Brain Research at Auckland University, the clinic initially focuses on stroke and traumatic brain injury, with scientists conducting trials of new stroke rehabilitation therapies.
Associate Minister of Health Dr Jonathan Coleman opened the facility, saying the Clinic brings clinicians, researchers and the community together into one place where people can be treated and benefit from greater collaboration.
”The Centre for Brain Research is a great example of collaboration, with over 200 researchers all working towards a common goal of finding and developing new treatments for neurological disease,” Coleman said.
”The work and advances in treatment undertaken at the Clinic will lead to a better quality of life for people living with a brain injury or neurological condition. Ultimately that’s the greatest potential benefit the Clinic offers.”
