Mental health researchers leave UNSW for UniSydney

A major mental health research centre is moving from UNSW to the University of Sydney. Some 40 staff from the NHMRC Centre of Research Excellence in Mental Health and Substance Abuse will follow centre chief Maree Teesson.

The centre was established in 2012 by the National Health and Medical Research Council as, “a world first, bringing together the largest concentration of nationally and internationally recognised comorbidity researchers.” It is now a partnership of the universities of Sydney, NSW, Newcastle and Macquarie University, plus the University of Birmingham in the UK and Northwestern U and the Medical University of South Carolina in the US.

The University of Sydney will house an expanded team of 60, working on substance abuse and mental health disorders in young people, as CREMs did at  UNSW.
