EDIPO: A computational solution for bringing neuroimaging genetic into translational research

Starting date
April 1, 2020
Duration (months)
Computer Science, Department of Engineering for Innovation Medicine
Managers or local contacts

Imaging, Genetics, Deep learning

Imaging genetics (IG) aims at decrypting the genetic underpinning of brain structure and function, that is still largely unknown. Though, it is one of the most prominent enabling technologies for precision medicine and, as such, holds a huge translational potential. EDIPO aims at contributing cutting-edge science and powerful technology for leading the IG field well beyond the stateof- the-art while addressing the peculiar issue of big heterogeneous data mining.
