Webinar Presentations to Date
Friday, January 6, 2023 at 2pm EDT
Our own David Kennedy (ReproNim PI, UMass Chan Medical School) and members of the ReproNim Team discuss The State of the ReproNim: An Update on Center Activities
ReproNim Collaborator Mike Yassa, along with ReproNim faculty David Keator, join us from UCI for a discussion of Early life adversity and brain development: A case study in imaging insights and challenges.
We kick off the new academic year with a special presentation by ReproNim faculty member Maryann Martone (UCSD, INCF), Reflections on progress in open and FAIR neuroscience. Maryann discusses the 'hows and whys' for the current sea change in neuroscience towards an an open and FAIR approach to all aspects of research, and the implications and importance of this movement for neuroscience going forward.
Tim Errington joins us from the Center for Open Science, with a presentation on Reproducibility in Preclinical Cancer Research - Lessons from the Reproducibility Project: Cancer Biology. This project underscores valuable insights and perspective on reproducibility that translate widely across scientific disciplines.
Sebastian Urchs joins us from McGill to discuss linked data principles and how they can be used to integrate data via metadata, with an illuminating presentation on Annotation 101: Linked Data 101 and the Semantic Web.
We welcome guest speaker Neda Jahanshad from the ENIGMA consortium for a presentation on The Evolving Landscape of Structured Multisite Neuroimaging Analyses: Observations and Opportunities from the ENIGMA Consortium.
ReproNim collaborators Michael O'Shea and the ELGAN team discuss Neuroimaging Studies of Consequences of Extremely Premature Birth in partnership with our own David Kennedy for related discussion of ReproNim-enabled Diffusion Imaging Analyses
ReproNim collaborator Anna Manelis and ReproNim investigator Yaroslav Halchenko consider "The interplay between depression and obesity: using the ReproNim technologies to study public health problems."
ReproNim investigators Jeffrey Grethe, David Keator, and Albert Crowley discuss how to create and utilize local metadata storage in "How to Build Your Own ReproPond," including various aspects of setup, local installation of BlazeGraph, and usage pointers.
ReproNim collaborator Remi Gau discusses his computational approach to best practices in data analysis and sharing (COBIDAS), combining eCOBIDAS with the use of ReproSchema to promote e-capture of experimental methods, in "eCOBIDAS: Because Methods Writing is Too Important (and Boring) to Let Humans Do It."
Guest speaker Franco Pestilli (Associate Professor, University of Indiana), discusses "brainlife.io A free cloud platform for secure, reproducible neuroscience data management, analysis and visualization."
