The Krembil Centre for Neuroinformatics (KCNI) at CAMH collaborates globally to collect and integrate large-scale brain research data, apply machine learning and artificial intelligence, and develop multiscale computational models that can transform our understanding of brain disorders. Our open, team science approach focuses on bridging the levels of the brain, from genes to circuits and from whole brains to the whole person, in order to better define, prevent and treat mental illnesses.

Register for Krembil²  today. (password: kcnikbi)

The Krembil Centre for Neuroinformatics at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health and the Krembil Brain Institute at the University Health Network are inviting you to a special Krembil² retreat on June 2, 2022 to bring together the two hospitals and its research scientists to establish a formal collaboration between the two institutions.

The retreat will highlight existing collaborations between our two institutions and identify new opportunities to expand collaborations and build new bridges with the aim of accelerating discoveries that bridge mental health and brain disorders.

By bridging our two Centres, we aim to establish a framework agreement and resources to facilitate and accelerate a broad array of collaborations including:

  • Discover, facilitate and streamline scientific collaboration
  • Support and enhance any existing collaborations
  • Develop shared infrastructure for data management and analysis
  • Simplify and standardize data sharing agreements for rapid collaboration
  • Advance machine learning and computational methodologies
  • Accelerate integrated educational programs and knowledge transfer
  • Cross-supervision of trainees and co-development
  • BrainHealth Databank - an inter-institutional resource for open science sharing of consented patient trajectory data

Intended Audience: Krembil researchers and research scientists under CAMH and UHN.

Krembil Centre for Neuroinformatics Virtual Open House

The Krembil Centre for Neuroinformatics is excited to host its Annual Open House on Friday, June 24 starting at 10am.

Come meet the KCNI team and learn about the latest developments virtually, or even better, in person!

Register for in-person or virtual here.

Summer Academy

The Krembil Centre for Neuroinformatics is excited to offer a five-day intensive project-based learning week where trainees will learn hands-on techniques for integrating multi-scale neuroscience data. This course is designed to introduce participants to the concepts and methods behind psychiatric neuroinformatics - encompassing genetics, brain structure and function, and cognition. In addition, participants will uncover the links between modalities of human genomics, neuronal electrophysiology, structural and functional neuroimaging, and observed behaviour that KCNI scientists are integrating through a series of virtual modules and a group-based project using real-world data types to study mental illness.

This unique learning opportunity will prepare participants to handle and analyze multiple data types in hopes that their own research may benefit from collaborative, multi-modal approaches. Critically, participants will also learn about best practices for data management and quality control in the context of integrative analysis.

Applications now closed.

The KCNI Speaker Series

The Krembil Centre for Neuroinformatics is pleased to launch a new Speaker Series highlighting exciting discoveries, advancements and collaborations in Neuroinformatics. The series features speakers from a wide range of backgrounds, expressing the diversity of the Krembil Centre’s scientific breadth. Each month we will hear a new perspective on the current state of multi-scale neuroscience, from gene to circuits, from brain dynamics to cognitive modeling and populations.

We welcome members of the broader community to join us monthly for these open Speaker Series. See below for a schedule of the upcoming speakers and view past speaker presentations. Missed the talk? Watch the recordings here.
