Austin Health Research

The Department fosters research across the wide range of clinical services at Austin Health, but has particular strengths in the somatoform disorders, psychopharmacology and perinatal psychiatry.

Psychiatric research at Austin Health covers the full range of clinical conditions seen here, with particular emphases on neuropsychiatry, eating disorders and PTSD.  Investigative specialisation has focussed on the neuroimaging modalities – PET, SPECT and MRI - that are located here, as well as our strengths in psychopharmacology.
