The NRG works with a number of neuroscience research institutions and facilities to further expand the boundaries of our work and theirs. Leveraging our XNAT software, we support such research in areas like Alzheimer’s Disease, Injury & Traumatic Stress, and Intellectual Development.
The ADRC supports the Center through its core research projects, including the Adult Children Study (NIH Grant 5P01AG026276), and the Dominantly Inherited Alzheimer Network (NIH Grant 5U01AG032438), a multi-center study of early onset dementia. The NIAC provides central data management, quality control, and image processing services to the ADRC.
The CCIR at the Washington University School of Medicine is committed to supporting both basic and cutting-edge healthcare research using advanced bioimaging and information technology systems. The CCIR assists investigators, and their collaborators, in the education, design, execution and analysis of basic and translational science imaging research studies. NRG provides the neuroinformatic database for the CCIR, and makes great use of the CCIR’s supercomputing power.
Founded in 1986 by Professors Jost, Blaine, and Cox, the ERL continues to investigate digital imaging technologies important to the distributed radiology department of the future. The NRG works closely with the ERL on DICOM-related neuroimaging for XNAT and other related projects.
The ICTS brings together researchers, health care providers and industry to facilitate discoveries in clinical research. One of their primary goals is to speed the translation of research findings directly into clinical practice — influencing and improving prevention, diagnosis, and therapy for a host of medical conditions. The NRG supports the informatics needs of the Human Imaging Core — learn more in our Projects page.
The overarching goal of the Post-traumatic Stress Disorder/Traumatic Brain Injury (PTSD/TBI) Clinical Consortium is to combine the efforts of the nation’s leading investigators to bring to market novel treatments or interventions that will ultimately decrease the impact of military-relevant psychological health problems and TBI. The NIAC provides centralized data management for imaging studies conducted by INTRUST.
Since 1931, Mallinckrodt Institute of Radiology‘s successive directors have supported the development of basic sciences associated with radiology. The Radiological Sciences Division was initiated by the Institute’s first director, Dr. Sherwood Moore, who believed that the most promising field of endeavor in radiology was the application of the new and rapidly developing field of nuclear physics to medical problems. The NRG was born within the Neuroimaging Lab of the MIR.
The goal of the WU IDDRC is to promote cutting-edge Innovation to understand and treat intellectual and developmental disabilities. The NIAC is collaborating with the WU IDDRC to provide data management, imaging processing, and computing services to the pediatric research community at Wash U.
