Our lab studies neurodegeneration in the human brain using data science and informatics approaches. We seek to identify the fundamental properties of brain organization and reorganization occurring due to neurodegenerative diseases, and develop methods and tools that can eventually be used for diagnostic and prognostic purposes. The lab is directed by Eran Dayan, Ph.D.




Our Research

The lab studies brain organization in neurodegenerative diseases, as well as in healthy aging. We strive to advance our basic understanding of neurodegeneration, while making discoveries that can be translated to clinical practice. Find out more here.


Our Approach

We use a range of computational approaches to analyze and model neuroimaging, fluid biomarker, clinical and genetic data, including machine and deep learning and complex network analytical approaches. We primarily work with large, existing datasets, and also with data collected with our clinical collaborators.


Our Location

The lab is affiliated with the Department of Radiology and the Biomedical Research Imaging Center (BRIC) at UNC-Chapel Hill. Our offices are located in the Bioinformatics Building, across the street from the BRIC, on UNC’s Medical Campus.
