Have you also collected valuable neuroimaging data that is waiting to be used? It is not only large cohorts that can generate valuable results, smaller samples can also have a major impact when we collaborate together!

On Wednesday October 6th at 05:00 PM (CET), the UNITED consortium is organizing an interactive webinar. The webinar will elaborate on the benefits of collaborative neuroimaging research and its global impact. We will also zoom in on the importance of increasing diversity within neuroimaging research, how to overcome possible hurdles and how to join the UNITED consortium.

The webinar consists of three short presentations by experts from this field. Subsequently, there will be the opportunity to ask questions to a professional panel. See the full program below. You are kindly invited to participate in this online meeting!

Can’t make it on Wednesday October 6th? Sign up anyway and you’ll receive a link to watch the webinar at another suitable moment.


05:00: Presentations
  • How collaboration can improve research and understanding in neuroimagingDr. Neda Jahanshad, key developer for the ENIGMA Consortium
Dr. Neda Jahanshad will tell us more about the founding of the well known ENIGMA Consortium and how they made an impact through collaborative neuroimaging research. The ENIGMA Consortium brings together researchers in imaging genomics to understand brain structure, function, and disease, based on brain imaging and genetic data.
  • Diversity within neuroimaging research and the possible hurdlesDr. Hieab Adams, principal investigator of the UNITED consortium
Why is it important to increase diversity within neuroimaging research and include underrepresented populations? How can we do this and what are the possible hurdles? Dr. Hieab Adams will tell us more about the UNITED consortium, its aims, its approach and how researchers can join.
  • CBRAIN: a user-friendly approach for image processing –Dr. Alan Evans, Scientific Director of the Canadian Open Neuroscience Platform (CONP)

Advanced analysis of neuroimaging data can be challenging. CBRAIN is an infrastructure that connects researchers and data from all walks of science to high performance and cloud computing in an easy to manage, reproducible, and user-friendly manner. Founder Dr. Alan Evans will explain how it works.
