Centre for Clinical Research in Neuropsychiatry
We believe that what we are doing at CCRN leads us in the right direction to future knowledge, but we also owe the community research outcomes that can find application now.Winthrop Professor Assen Jablensky

Collaborations and funding
Since the Centre’s inception in 1995, it has raised more than $42 million in funding towards neuropsychiatry research. CCRN is also embedded in major international and national collaborative networks of research into severe mental disorders.

Some of these collaborations and funding sources include:
- Centre for Genetic Origin of Health Disease
- Harry Perkins Research Institute
- Lions Eye Institute
- UWA School of Psychology
- Australian Schizophrenia Research Bank (ASRB)
- Cooperative Research Centre – Mental Health
- Survey of High Impact Psychosis (SHIP) Study
- International Schizotypy Consortium
- Meeting for Minds
- Pedigree-Based Endophenotype Consortium
- Psychiatric Genomics Consortium (PGC2)
- World Health Organisation
- Wellcome Trust Consortium
National Health and Medical Research Council Funded Grants

UWA Health Campus and Queen Elizabeth II Medical Centre
The UWA Health Campus provides cutting-edge specialist teaching and learning facilities for students, professionals and patients.
J. Robin Warren Library
The J Robin Warren Library is an innovative, technology-rich space to enhance student learning within the Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences at UWA
Psychological Science is the scientific study of mental processes and behaviour, and is a challenging and wide-ranging discipline.
The research discipline of Psychiatry at UWA is responding to the greatest mental health challenges of our time.
The Medical School brings together the brightest students, experienced clinicians and committed researchers to unlock the greatest health challenges of our day.
