Welcome to the Centre for Healthy Brain Ageing (CHeBA).
CHeBA is an international centre of excellence in multidisciplinary research into the ageing brain and various aspects of cognitive disorders, including dementia. The work of CHeBA’s Research Groups extend from molecular work in genomics, epigenomics, proteomics, lipidomics, metabolomics, and molecular biology, to neuronal systems and networks in the Neuroimaging Lab, to clinical, epidemiological and sociological research, to research on ageing health policy using its strong links with teaching hospitals, aged care providers, state and federal governments and its established ageing cohort studies. Its work strongly emphasises implementation, capacity building and translational research.
Our mission is to enhance the evidence base in relation to prevention, early detection, and treatment of age-related disorders, in particular brain diseases, and improve the health care of individuals affected by these diseases.
