The ENIGMA Consortium – Exploring the Genetic Architecture of Human Brain Structure

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.
