Event Details


Resting-state functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) has been used to identify consistent functional patterns in neurotypical individuals, as well as changes in neurologic and psychiatric diseases.

This Biotech Symposium will focus on resting state fMRI, a neuroimaging technique that uses dynamic changes in oxygenated blood flow to explore the brain’s functional organization when a person is at rest and not performing an explicit task.

Throughout the academic year, the Biotech Symposia provide a venue for discussing the latest technical approaches in life sciences, and examine new methods and algorithms in life sciences, genomics and data science, such as resting-state fMRI. Past Biotech Symposia topics have included single nucleotide polymorphism detection and diffusion magnetic resonance imaging.

The symposia are intended to inform and engage those interested in understanding and applying these techniques. New York City area faculty, postdoctoral and clinical fellows, students and technical staff are encouraged to attend. During the mid-afternoon break, guests are invited to meet the speakers and mingle.
