Australian Chapter of the Organisation of Human Brain Imaging

(COVID-19 Update) Due to social distancing practices, and for the health and safety of our members, we have decided to delay our next in-person meeting, which was due to take place at the Annual Brain Sciences Meeting in Brisbane, in May 2020. We anticipate that this meeting will take place in 2021, and we will keep you updated here.

The OHBM Australia Committee are still discussing options on whether to host an online meeting this year. We will also post any updates here.

We hope you all keep well, and are taking good care of one another.


What comes to mind when you hear “Australia”?  Is it kangaroos, koalas, the Great Barrier Reef, surfing and Pavlova, or perhaps sharks, crocodiles, deadly spiders and snakes? You can now add another association to the list – OHBM Australian chapter.

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.

We welcome our members and other interested researchers around the world to watch the calendar of our events and join our activities.
