BSI Talk Series: Vince Calhoun
August 14, 2020 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
Title: Brain Space Initiative: A Social and Technical Resource
Dr. Vince Calhoun, the leader of the Brain Space Initiative, will talk about what is the goal of the BSI and as well as the motivation for some of the existing study group topics by showing some of the ongoing work at TReNDS in his talk entitled: Brain Space Initiative, a social and technical resource.
About Dr. Calhoun
Dr. Calhoun’s work has inspired many young researchers and scientists in the field. He received the 2020 IEEE EMBS Society Technical Achievement Award For his contributions to data-driven processing of multimodal brain imaging and genetic data. He is also the past Chair of the Organization of Human Brain Mapping. Dr. Calhoun has published over 800 journal papers and has over 58000 citations. He has focused his career on the development of data-driven algorithms to map dynamic brain function (including the introduction of group ICA, joint ICA, and whole brain dynamic connectivity (chronnectome) approaches to the field) as well as brain structure, connectivity, and genomics and to study how these networks vary in the healthy and disordered brain. He has also developed and released multiple widely used software toolboxes implementing these algorithms which have been downloaded by over 20,000 unique individuals and have developed multiple centralized and decentralized neuroinformatics tools to enable data capture, management, archiving, analysis, and data sharing, housing over 40,000 datasets across over 800 studies. He is highly collaborative and the TReNDS center he recently founded is focused on leveraging advanced analytic and data science approaches to enable brain imaging biomarkers to be developed and utilized.
