Djavad Mowafaghian Centre for Brain Health

The UBC Faculty of Medicine (FoM) and Vancouver Coastal Health (VCH) developed the new Djavad Mowafaghian Centre for Brain Health (CBH) translational research facility adjacent to the UBC Hospital and operationally integrated with existing related Brain Research Centre (BRC), Institute for Mental Health (IMH), Department of Psychiatry and Division of Neurology facilities. The vision for the Centre for Brain Health was to “to create a centre of excellence focused on translational research and patient-centered care aimed at the prevention, understanding the causes, and treating the consequences of brain dysfunction”. The core principles of the project were: integration, flexibility, collaboration and sustainability. The Djavad Mowafaghian CBH facility has been developed and operated as a partnership between the UBC Faculty of Medicine and Vancouver Coastal Health. The building is located on Wesbrook Mall in front of the Koerner Pavilion of the UBC Hospital, and contains research clinics, wet and dry bench research space, and academic and administrative offices.
