We are pleased to announce that our team (PI: Dr. Kurt and co-PI: Dr. Balchandani) was awarded an R21 grant by the National Institute of Health (NIH) for the the project titled "Cross-correlation of biomechanical, connectomic, and pathologic markers in Alzheimer's disease at 7T MRI"! This project aims to develop a novel framework for early diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease by combining biomechanical and connectomic MR neuroimaging tools at ultra-high resolution. Preparations for this project are already underway!

We are excited to announce that our collaborative team (PI: Dr. Kurt, co-PIs: Dr. Zhang, Dr. Weickenmeier, and Dr. Balchandani) was awarded $2,000,000 by the National Science Foundation for the project titled "Tackling Brain Diseases with Mechanics: A Data-Driven Approach to Merge Advanced Neuroimaging and Multi-Physics Modeling"! This proposal will support research to understand the biomechanics of the brain through a combination of ultrahigh field MR techniques and multi-physics modeling to tackle and understand brain diseases, such as traumatic brain injury. We can't wait to get started!
