Since its establishment in 2012, the University of Ottawa’s Brain and Mind Research Institute (uOBMRI) has been committed to advancing interdisciplinary research excellence on the brain and mind for greater impact.

The uOBMRI’s strength is in its unique virtual model to promote collaborations — across disciplines; across our affiliated research hospitals, between researchers and knowledge users; and across the Ottawa region and internationally. Today, the uOBMRI is the largest institute at the University of Ottawa, and with over 250 members, one of the largest in the country, creating a dynamic hub for internationally recognized research and training.

“We have learned from the pandemic that medical research is critically important. Our researchers are dedicated to keeping up the research momentum at all times. The support of our community is critical to driving the latest brain health research discoveries and advancements.” - Dr. Ruth Slack, uOBMRI Director
