Neuromuscular and neurological conditions are a major health problem in the Australian community affecting an estimated one in eight of the population. These disorders include muscular dystrophy, stroke, motor neurone disease, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, spinal injuries, dystonias, inflammatory myopathies, brain tumours, Alzheimer's disease and many more.

The Australian Neuromuscular Research Institute (founded in 1982) became a Centre within the University of Western Australia (UWA) in 1999.

The Centre has seven main groups but numerous disciplines such as Molecular genetics, DNA Technology, Neurobiology, Gene Therapy, Neurology (clinical, functional, interventional etc), Neuropathology, Research Physiotherapy and Molecular Medicine to name a few.
