About Kids Neuroscience Centre

The Kids Neuroscience Centre investigates the causes, consequences and therapies for life-limiting muscle and brain disorders.

These include:

  • Muscular dystrophies
  • Peripheral neuropathies and Neurofibromatosis Type 1
  • Acquired neurological diseases such as Multiple Sclerosis and autoimmune movement disorders.

Alongside world-leading laboratory research into the genetic and biological mechanisms of disease, the Centre operates a research-based diagnostic service, helping to provide children and families with accurate diagnoses and disease-specific treatment, and a clinical trials unit that allows children to participate in international clinical research and access the latest treatment options.

Formally known as the Institute for Neuroscience and Muscle Research, the Kids Neuroscience Centre was officially renamed in June 2018.
