A project lead by Dr. Richard Aviv and his group in Toronto (that we were collaborating on) has just been accepted for publication in Multiple Sclerosis Journal. It compares DCE perfusion imaging measures to white matter integrity and lesion volume throughout large-scale, functionally-defined brain networks (using our UManitoba-JHU Functionally-Defined White Matter Atlases). If you’d like to know more, feel free to check out the OnlineFirst version of the paper here.
I am ecstatic to announce an inflow of grant funding! We were successful in the last rounds of the NSERC Discovery Grant Competition, as well as the MS Society of Canada Operating Grants Competition. We are very grateful for this funding, as it will help to ensure that we are able to continue doing our research for the next several years!
Our functionally-defined white matter atlases (resulting from Teresa’s and Navdeep’s Frontiers in Human Neuroscience paper) have now been launched as a free, publicly-available resource to the broader neuroimaging community.
We are pleased to announce the launch of the UManitoba-JHU Functionally-Defined Human White Matter Atlas!!!
Teresa’s and Navdeep’s paper has been accepted for publication in Frontiers in Human Neuroscience. Please check it out here: http://journal.frontiersin.org/article/10.3389/fnhum.2015.00585/full
There are several new faces up on the 7th floor in our Core NeuroImaging Lab, and I am pleased to announce that one of those belongs to a new Master’s student – Kevin Solar.
Kevin has entered through the Physiology & Pathophysiology Graduate Program, and will be co-supervised by Dr. Jennifer Kornelsen and myself. To find out more about Kevin, please feel free to visit the People page.
After a year of planning and renovations, I am very pleased to announce that the NeuroImaging Core Lab is finally complete. We are now ready to move everyone together in our beautiful new space (which I am also happy to announce has been equipped with a fancy new coffee maker)!
I am very glad to announce two very important new additions to the lab!
Sohail and Shatil have joined me as MSc students through the Biomedical Engineering Graduate Program. I am happy to report that they have arrived safely and seem to be settling well into their course-work, research projects and life in Winnipeg — although they have yet to experience their first Canadian winter 😉
If you are interested, please check out the People page for their bios.
