BrainAndMore (BAM) lab focuses cutting edge genetic, molecular and mainly magnetic resonance imaging technology to understand diseases and support drug development efforts in the neuroscience field.

In this project you will be working on machine learning approaches for neuroimaging. From segmentation of vessel structures in brain data to more advanced tasks, ranging from data analysis of mice brain data to MRI of humans. According to the inclination of the applicant we can reshape towards more specific data and research questions.

This project will be carried out in cooperation with machine learning and AI scientists at Sano and its partners and by developing external collaborations in France and across Poland.

In this project we want to investigate different types of neuroimaging beyond connectomes, by using both structural and functional data.

What are you going to do?
