The Computational Connectomics (CoCo) Laboratory is a part of the Department of Radiology at Weill Cornell Medicine in New York, NY and the Computational Biology and Statistics and Data Science Departments at Cornell University. Our lab, spanning two of Cornell's campuses in Ithaca and Manhattan, focuses on using quantitative methods (including AI) applied to MRI-based measures of brain anatomy and physiology to understand the mysteries of the human brain. One major interest of our lab is in uncovering network-level mechanisms of impairment and recovery after neurological injury or disease, including traumatic brain injury, multiple sclerosis and stroke. If we can understand brain-behavior relationships, we may be able to develop accurate diagnostics, prognostics and individualized therapeutics that can boost recovery after neurological disease or injury.
Interested in joining the lab?
We strive to maintain a diverse and inclusive environment, where everyone feels supported and free to share their ideas. While studies have shown that diverse environments make for better science, we also think it is the right thing to do to create a fair and just world.
Come work with us! We have positions available for graduate students and postdoctoral fellows. Please email a CV and cover letter describing your research interests to firstname.lastname@example.org
