About the Initiative
The Michigan Neuroimaging initiative aims to enhance and expand neuroimaging research at the University of Michigan and to encourage collaboration with other neuroimaging researchers and researchers in other fields who can contribute innovative methods, computational resources, or new perspectives that will aid neuroimaging research. Specifically, we are committed to the following goals.
Enhancing interaction amongst investigators
Nurturing and expanding the neuroimaging community at the University of Michigan.
Developing integrated neuroimaging core services
Providing a computational and methodological infrastructure to support that community. Infrastructure here means both capital (scanners, computers, software) and human (technical staff, faculty hires, student recruiting) resources that provide ongoing support for neuroimaging activities.
Building a training and consulting infrastructure
Implementing a common set of workflows and providing training and consultation in their usage, freeing investigators to devote their time to more sophisticated issues and to innovation.
