I am collaborating with Drs. Andy Saykin and Li Shen at IUPUI to develop and apply novel methods for the genetic analysis of neuroimaging phenotypes. This is a really hot new area. I will be giving a talk on some of our recent results at the 8th International Imaging Genetics Conference, to be held on January 16th and 17th, 2012 at the Beckman Center of the National Academy of Sciences in Irvine, CA. We have applied some of our recent network science methods (see paper below) to the Alzheimer's Disease Neuroimaging Initiative (ADNI) data.
