Diffusion & Connectomics In Precision Healthcare Research
The DiCIPHR lab focuses on understanding the structural and functional connectivity in the brain when it is healthy, and the ways the connectivity is altered as a result of disease. This is achieved by developing advanced mathematical and computational tools for various aspects of diffusion MRI analysis, as well as multimodal connectomics with applications in the clinic. These tools have enabled investigations in sex differences, healthy brain development, communication scheme brain assumes, autism, brain cancer, and traumatic brain injury. In addition to population-based studies that elucidate imaging patterns of disease, the lab aims to develop subject-specific imaging biomarkers paving the way for precision imaging.
