Transforming mental health by modelling data across all levels of the brain.
Our team of world-leading specialists will transform our understanding of mental health by organizing, integrating, analyzing, visualizing and modelling data across all levels of the brain—from genes to circuits to behaviour.
We use state-of-the-art techniques–including topological data analysis, machine learning and multi-scale computational modelling–to accelerate the identification and treatment of mental illness.
A focus on global collaboration is key to transforming our understanding of mental illness and its treatment.
The Krembil Centre will also operate as an incubator for medical technologies to identify, manage and treat mental illness, while shaping policy at national and global levels.
Data generated at CAMH and from around the world provide an unparalleled opportunity to transform our understanding of mental health. The deluge of data from our digital world can generate knowledge for the prevention and treatment of mental illness.

What is Neuroinformatics?
Neuroinformatics is an area of research that uses complex data analysis, artificial intelligence and computer modelling to uncover new insights about the brain. By combining these approaches, researchers can study multiple and large collections of data about the brain. Researchers seek to understand and depict the brain’s structures, how it works and how a range of factors—from genes to brain circuits to behaviours—play a role in mental illness, including addiction.
