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.
Good News!!! We just found out that our application for a 2014-2015 Health Sciences Centre (HSC) Foundation General Operating Grant was successful. The project is entitled “Investigating the neural basis of cognitive decline in Multiple Sclerosis using high-field structural and functional magnetic resonance imaging”, and one of the major line items in the budget is to hire a full-time Research Associate…so stay tuned to the People page in the coming months – the Figley Lab will probably be growing!
Note: If you are interested in applying for the position, please check the Lab Opportunities page soon for a formal job description.
It is 25 December 2013, and I have officially achieved my goal (set back in September) of launching the lab website before the new year. I had a lot of help from Sara Johnson from JDesigns, who prepared all of the information architecture and WordPress stuff on the back-end, so thanks a million Sara for all your hard work.
Merry Christmas Everyone!
