The ENIGMA Network brings together researchers in imaging genomics, to understand brain structure, function, and disease, based on brain imaging and genetic data.

Not signed up? Join ENIGMA at any time!

We welcome brain researchers, imagers, geneticists, methods developers, and others interested in cracking the neuro-genetic code!

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 ENIGMA project: Jason Stein (IGC), Sarah Medland (QIMR Berghofer), Alejandro Arias Vasquez (UMC Radboud), Derrek Hibar (IGC), Neda Jahanshad (IGC),Barbara Franke (UMC Radboud), Nick Martin (QIMR Berghofer), Margie Wright (QIMR Berghofer), Paul Thompson (IGC)
