Accelerating Brain Science: From COVID to dementia

The banging and whirring of MRI machines and other imaging technologies are just getting underway for the Repeat Imaging Project. Still, a study spurred by the COVID-19 pandemic has already demonstrated its potential, especially for brain research.

Pushing the Limits of Imaging Science

The Repeat Imaging Project will also show us what is needed to help scientists and clinicians get the most out of existing imaging data and gain an even deeper understanding of human biology.
