Strategic Plan


The Djavad Mowafaghian Centre for Brain Health's first strategic plan will guide its actions and activities over the next five years and beyond, while also enabling the flexibility to pivot towards exciting new opportunities as they arise. 

The plan focuses on four strategic pillars —Research, Training, Local and Global Engagement, and People and Places—with specific actions outlined in order to achieve success in each pillar. All of these align closely with the strategic priorities of the UBC Faculty of Medicine and fit into the Centre’s larger vision of achieving global excellence in the advancement of brain health across the lifespan.

With an emphasis on creativity and innovation, the Centre aims to expand its cross-disciplinary research to enable high impact, translational findings to improve the health and wellbeing of patients. Through research, education and community outreach programs, the Centre will foster collaborative and reciprocal partnerships both locally and abroad.
