ESR 14

Comprehensive management of complex data from NHP brain network studies

Location(s): Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München, Planegg-Martinsried, Germany

Supervisors: Prof Dr T. Wachtler 

Advanced experimental paradigms required to study dynamic brain network function in non-human primates result in multimodal data of high heterogeneity, complexity and volume. Efficiently managing such data for reproducible, collaborative analysis and re-use requires methods and tools supporting consistent data annotation, data organisation, and workflow documentation (Grewe et al 2011, Zehl et al 2016). In this project we will develop novel approaches for handling heterogeneous data and complex analysis workflows to enable efficient and reproducible data analysis and data sharing. The ESR will work closely with experimental laboratories to harmonize data organziation and annotation and will develop software tools, compatible with current standards in neuroscience, to support reproducibility and data accessibility according to the FAIR principles.

Planned secondment(s):

  • French National Institute of Health and Medical Research (INSERM)
  • Covance Preclinical Services GMbH
