The NSW Brain Banks Board is the overarching governing body for these specialised research facilities. In particular, the NSW Brain Banks Board:

  1. Ensures that the operations of the two banks are harmonised, effective and efficient;
  2. Provides reports on the operations and external funding of the facilities to the Deputy Vice Chancellors (Research) and Chief Executive Officers of the institutions involved;
  3. Identifies training opportunities using these facilities; and
  4. Raises awareness of these facilities and their contribution to the research community and society.

The Board is comprised of:

  • A chairperson whose appointment is approved by all institutions involved;
  • Institutional representatives (USyd, UNSW, NeuRA); and
  • Directors of each of the two brain banks involved and the Chair of the Brain Donor Programs Committee
