Daniel Asay joins us from the Harvard University Center for Brain Science. He discusses his work with Tim O'Keefe and colleagues on open-source quality control pipelines (XNAT 1.8+ plugins), particularly for diffusion weighted imaging, in his presentation: DWIQC: Diffusion Imaging Quality Control Pipeline
Rudolph Pienaar joins us (Harvard Medical School, Boston Children's Hospital) as guest speaker to kickoff our fall season! He shares his expertise and insights on the development and applications of an open source platform for computational research and medicine (ChRIS), with a presentation on "The Challenges of Medical Computing in the Age of AI and Clouds – how ChRIS can help."
Arno Klein is our special guest speaker, joining us from the Child Mind Institute to share some of his intriguing and innovative technological developments aimed at better understanding of and treatment for childhood mental health disorders: MindLogger platform for configurable data collection and interventions in research and clinical practice
We're excited to have Angie Laird, from the Neuroinformatics and Brain Connectivity group at Florida International University as our featured guest speaker. Angie shares her wisdom and very experienced perspective with a presentation on "Large, Open Datasets for Neuroimaging Research: Considerations for Reproducible and Responsible Data Use."
We welcome ReproNim Fellowship graduate Sook-Lei Liew for a presentation on her pioneering work in reproducibility education for researchers in the medical rehabilitation community: "ReproRehab: Building a reproducible rehabilitation research education program for the medical rehabilitation community."
Special guest speaker Pradeep Raamana joins us from the University of Pittsburgh to share his expertise in the development of automated QA tools for MRI protocol compliance, including open datasets, in Neuroimaging Quality Control (niQC): critical yet overlooked part of neuroscience."

Special guest speaker Steffen Bollmann joins us from University of Queensland with a presentation on Neurodesk: An accessible, flexible, and portable data analysis environment for reproducible neuroimaging.
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."
