Diffusion and Connectomics
in Precision Healthcare
Translating brain connectivity research to the clinic
The DiCIPHR lab focuses on patient-oriented neuroimaging research, aiming to understand the association of disease related structural and functional connectivity alterations in the brain, and the symptoms. Such clinically focussed investigations are rooted in advanced mathematical and computational tools for diffusion MRI analysis, as well as multiparametric connectomics. These tools encompass processing pipelines, automated quality control and multi-site harmonization and have enabled investigations in sex differences, brain development, autism, brain tumor, and traumatic brain injury. Investigation of these clinical questions have been further facilitated by network neuroscience research in communication schemes, network reorganization strategies, as well as pre-clinical mechanistic investigations.
