The successful individual will work on MRI data as part of ongoing studies in Multiple Sclerosis. The Bioinformatics specialist will have the opportunity to work closely with imaging scientists and engineers, as well as Neuroradiologists and Neurologists. The focus of the work will be on developing and running pipelines for the processing and analysis of advanced MRI imaging data on patients with Multiple Sclerosis as well as control volunteers.
Specifically, the bioinformatics shall be a core contributor to the development of a clinical service that quantitatively estimates the change in brain volume for multiple sclerosis patients. In addition to algorithm development to accurately estimate the change in brain volume, the bioinformatics scientist will interface with other data scientists to leverage our cohort of patients to understand normative patterns in brain atrophy data.
The service shall be made available for the EPIC team and the bioinformaticist shall be part of a team responsible for consistently delivering clinical reports to clinicians treating patents in the EPIC studies.
Further work will be done in developing other neuroimaging volumetric pipelines and designing and maintaining production-ready code products to facilitate the storage, visualization and analysis of neuroimaging volumetric data.
