Curriculum Vitae

Interests:
My research focuses on developing neuroimaging markers for neuropsychiatric diseases including schizophrenia and Alzheimer disease and related dementias. I apply tools of mathematics, engineering and computer science to the analysis of in vivo and ex vivo structural and functional MRI neuroimaging datasets. Recently, I've explored the use of nanotechnology for imaging neuronal activity using in vivo animal imaging. I also enjoy running, cycling, and hiking with my wife and daughters.

Interests:
My interests include neuropsychiatric changes in patients with Alzheimer's disease and frontotemporal dementia. Currently, I am working on a project on characterizing the default mode network in depressed rats by using rsfMRI to map resting state connectivity. The goal of this project is to analyze differences in default mode network connectivity by disease state (depressed vs. healthy control) and by ovarectomy state, in hopes of better understanding network changes that occur in depressed humans.

Projects:

  • PREDICT-ADFTD: Multimodal Imaging Prediction of AD/FTD and Differential Diagnosis (PI: Wang (contact), Howie Rosen): Accurate diagnosis of frontotemporal dementia (FTD) is difficult because the relationships between clinical syndromes, and pathological and genetic causes are complex. In this project, we propose to use machine learning technologies to develop powerful predictive biomarkers that can distinguish bvFTD, AD and healthy controls, using well-characterized clinical, neurological and neuroanatomical data from multiple national databases. As treatment agents with potential disease-modifying effects are developed, sensitive and specific biomarkers can be tested and then eventually used in the appropriate patient populations.
  • NCS-FO: Connectome mapping algorithms with application to community services for big data neuroscience (PI: Pestilli, Garyfallidis, Henschel, Wang, Dinov): The project focuses on providing seamless public access to data, computing, and reproducible algorithms, while promoting code sharing and upcycling the long tail of neuroscience data.
  • The New Tics Study: A Novel Approach to Pathophysiology and Cause of TIC Disorder (PI: Kevin Black (contact), Brad Schlaggar WUSTL): At least 20% of all children have tics at some time in their life, making tic disorders a subject of substantial public health interest. In many children the tics will disappear before they’ve lasted as long as a year, but in others they go on to become Tourette syndrome or Chronic Tic Disorder (TS/CTD). Prior research generally has not clarified whether abnormalities of brain structure and function in children with TS/CTD are related to tic appearance or to the more important process of tic disappearance. This project will study children with recent-onset tics using clinical evaluation, MRI, and neuropsychological measures, and repeat these measures at the earliest time point that TS/CTD can be diagnosed. The results from the first assessment will be compared to results from two matching comparison groups: children with no personal or family history of tics, and children who have had tics for more than a year (Existing TS/CTD). This new approach may provide a new angle on research into Tourette syndrome, in addition to providing sorely needed information about prognosis for children who just started ticcing.
  • BD Spokes: SPOKE MIDWEST Collaborative: Advanced Computational Neuroscience Network (ACNN) (PI: Lei Wang PhD and Franco Pestilli PhD (Indiana)): The SchizConnect technology is being leveraged to enable cross-center neuroimaging data and high-level accessibility, and provide an integrated virtual database with a well-defined consistent schema. The overall ACNN project is aimed at building broad consensus on the core requirements, infrastructure, and components needed to develop a new generation of sustainable interdisciplinary neuroscience big data research. Six major universities in the Midwest including Northwestern will coordinate activities across more than 25 other universities, industry partners, neuroscience research centers and hospitals.
  • Neurodegenerative and Neurodevelopmental Subcortical Shape Diffeomorphometry Software (PI: Michael I. Miller (JHU, contact), Wang): Our lab’s role is to use SchizConnect to retrieve schizophrenia imaging data for pipeline processing; implement the subcortical software developed and hardened at JHU, with remote processing being carried out at MriCloud. The overall project extends and hardens powerful computational anatomy and computer science software to analyze large datasets from neuroimaging studies of neurodevelopmental and neurodegeneration disorders including Huntington’s Disease, Schizophrenia and Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorders.
  • SchizConnect: Large-Scale Schizophrenia Neuroimaging Data Mediation & Federation (PI: Lei Wang (Contact, NU), Jose Luis Ambite (USC), Steven Potkin (UCI), Jessica Turner (MRN), David Keator (UCI)): Large-scale data sharing and integration is needed to further the state-of-the-art schizophrenia research, but is presently not possible due to practical limitations in the way in which data are being shared. SchizConnect is a data mediation and integration resource to overcome these limitations in a low-cost manner and deliver a web portal to interact with the federated databases. Access SchizConnect at http://schizconnect.org.
  • Northwestern University Schizophrenia Data and Software Tool (NUSDAST) (PI: Wang): To make structural magnetic resonance (MR) imaging data, genotyping data, and neurocognitive data as well as analysis tools available to the schizophrenic research community. Please note that this dataset is also accessible through the SchizConnect project at: http://schizconnect.org. Here, you will be able to get additional schizophrenia neuroimaging data from FBIRN and COINS.
  • Northwestern University Neuroimaging Data Archive (NUNDA) (PI: Wang): To establish a data archive for the neuroimaging community at Northwestern University, which has the capacity to efficiently and securely store collected MR scans, and to later retrieve them in time-sensitive datasets.
