The ENIGMA Network brings together researchers in imaging genomics, to understand brain structure and function, based on MRI, DTI, fMRI and genomewide association scan (GWAS) data. The ENIGMA Network has several goals:
- To create a network of like-minded individuals, interested in pushing forward the field of imaging genetics.
- To ensure promising findings are replicated via member collaborations, in order to satisfy the mandates of most journals.
- To share ideas, algorithms, data, and information on research studies and methods.
- To facilitate training, including workshops and conferences on key methods and emerging directions in imaging genetics.
Data sharing with other members of the ENIGMA Network is optional and by no means a requirement of joining the network.
The support group for the first ENIGMA project: Jason Stein (UCLA), Sarah Medland (QIMR), Alejandro Arias Vasquez (UMC Radboud), Derrek Hibar (UCLA), Barbara Franke (UMC Radboud), Nick Martin (QIMR), Margie Wright (QIMR), Paul Thompson (UCLA)
