The goal of the newly formed Australian Chapter is to unite and invigorate the neuroimaging community in Australia. Our members come from a variety of universities and research institutes around the country – Brisbane, Melbourne, Sydney, Adelaide – working in the fields of fundamental and clinical neuroscience. We aim to further promote scientific communication and outreach through organising lectures, colloquia, workshops, conferences, and social/networking events throughout Australia. We strive to maintain current and form new networks of regional and international collaborations across all disciplines of neuroscience and neuroimaging. OHBM has once been hosted in Melbourne – in 2008. Our ambition is to welcome OHBM community in Australia again in the next few years.
