Your expert presenter Dr Harris A. Eyre

MBBS, PhD, co-lead of the OECD-PRODEO Institute Neuroscience-inspired Policy Initiative

Originally from Central Queensland, Dr Eyre trained in clinical medicine and neuroscience. He is now US-based and co-founder of the PRODEO Institute. The PRODEO Institute - in partnership with the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) - seeks to incubate new approaches to brain-based investing, economics and policy. They have pioneered the new model of ‘‘brain capital’’ - broadly defined as a form of capital which prioritises brain skills and brain health. They seek to place brain capital at the center of a new narrative of progress to ensure economic recovery and resilience now and in the future.

Dr Eyre maintains advisory or adjunct roles with the American Psychological Association, the Global Brain Health Institute at the University of California San Francisco (UCSF), Baylor College of Medicine and Deakin University. He has authored over 100 book chapters and papers, for The Brookings Institution, Lancet Neurology, World Psychiatry and The RSA Journal. He is also lead editor of “Convergence Mental Health: A Transdisciplinary Approach to Innovation”, recently published by Oxford University Press. He is a Fulbright Scholar and alumnus of the Forbes 30 Under 30 program.
