Welcome to the National Research Resource
Our resource is dedicated to the design of quantitative magnetic resonance (MR) acquisition and processing technology to assess tissue changes and alterations in function, metabolism, and physiology as the brain changes during neurodevelopment or neurodegeneration. This technology development is done in collaboration with a large community of clinicians and neuroscientists at several institutions in Maryland and throughout the USA. The technologies being developed are disseminated to investigators nationwide and throughout the world. This is accomplished through publications, training courses, and by making software and databases available.
Our resources fall into the following categories:
- MRI facilities, image acquisition, and processing
- FM Kirby Research Center for Functional Brain Imaging (FMKRC)
- At the Kennedy Krieger Institute
- Computing facilities and image analysis
- Center for Imaging Science (CIS)
- At the Johns Hopkins University
- Novel statistical methods for functional brain imaging
- Statistical Methods and Applications for Research in Technology (SMART)
- At the Johns Hopkins School of Public Health
- Translating laboratory discoveries to patient treatment
- The Institute for Clinical and Translational Research (ICTR)
- At the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine
We are supported by NIH grant P41 EB015909 (formerly P41 RR015241).
