Wu Tsai Neuro's weekly seminar series is back to being held in-person since Fall 2022. Masking is strongly encouraged for the health and safety of our community Join the speaker for coffee, cookies, and conversation after the talk

Brain imaging in UK Biobank


The UK Biobank imaging study is a very ambitious project in which the brain, heart, bones and abdomen of 100,000 UK Biobank participants are being scanned. Over 60,000 participants have been scanned already. As part of the team developing the analysis pipeline for the brain scans, I will introduce the brain imaging dataset, and present the kind of studies that can be done using this unique resource, including the UK Biobank COVID-19 re-imaging project.

My body of work is at the interface between basic neuroscience, methodological imaging development and clinical application. It focuses on translational research from imaging methods to applied human neuroscience, such as brain maturation, ageing, and disease (Alzheimer's disease, movement disorders, COVID-19) and with a recent emphasis on very large imaging datasets to identify - and make sense - of relevant clinical information.

About the Wu Tsai Neuro Seminar Series

The Wu Tsai Neurosciences Institute seminar series brings together the Stanford neuroscience community to discuss cutting-edge, cross-disciplinary brain research, from biochemistry to behavior and beyond.

Topics include new discoveries in fundamental neurobiology; advances in human and translational neuroscience; insights from computational and theoretical neuroscience; and the development of novel research technologies and neuro-engineering breakthroughs.

Unless otherwise noted, seminars are held Thursdays at 12:00 noon PT.
