Welcome to PrairieNeuro

Bench-to-bedside research aimed at advancing treatment and diagnosis of brain and mental health disorders

PrairieNeuro Research Centre

A Manitoba interdisciplinary brain and mental health research initiative

PrairieNeuro brings together top experts in neurobiology, behavioural neuroscience, neurosurgery, neurology, psychiatry, neuroradiology, neurogenomics and computational neuroscience in a fertile interdisciplinary setting. Housed in world-class facilities in Shared Health Manitoba’s Kleysen Institute for Advanced Medicine, PrairieNeuro scientists work together to discover new mechanisms of brain disease and injury using leading-edge approaches ranging from advanced cell and molecular modeling of brain function to complex analyses of growing international human patient databases. These fundamental discoveries are designed to fuel translational identification and testing of novel approaches for treatment and diagnosis of human brain and mental health disorders.

PrairieNeuro is a joint initiative of Shared Health Manitoba and the University of Manitoba’s Rady Faculty of Health Sciences.
