About the NITRC Team

NITRC is built and operated by TCG, Inc. of Washington, D.C. in collaboration with University of Massachusetts Medical School of Worcester, MA; Neuromorphometrics of Somerville, MA; and is hosted by the Center for Research in Biological Systems of the University of California, San Diego.

NITRC's project management and development team consists of Nina Preuss, PmP, Robert Buccigrossi, Ph.D., Matthew Travers, Albert Crowley, Abby Paulson, David Kirkpatrick, Natalie Graeff, and formerly, Haig Evans-Kavaldjian, Kimberly Pohland, Kent Reynolds, Maureen Sullivan, and Judith Turner, PmP.

TCG, Inc.: At TCG, we pride ourselves on being and thinking differently—and we apply this approach to everything we do. As a result, we develop unique solutions that change the way government works.

For more than 20 years, TCG has helped federal agencies develop custom-built solutions tailored to meet their exact requirements. We're smart, fair, honest, and open and we invest in every challenge put before us. We help government improve while saving time and money.

University of Massachusetts Medical School

The NITRC Community Liaison is David N. Kennedy, Ph.D., Director of the Division of Neuroinformatics at the Child and Adolescent Neurodevelopment Initiative (CANDI) and Professor of Psychiatry at the University of Massachusetts Medical School. He has extensive expertise in the development of image analysis techniques and was a co-founder of the Center for Morphometric Analysis (CMA) at Massachusetts General Hospital. In addition, David is a founding editor of the journal Neuroinformatics. For more information, contact David Kennedy at david.kennedy@umassmed.edu.

Neuromorphometrics, Inc.

Neuromorphometrics, Inc. addresses the need for a service to obtain quantitative brain measurements using MRI. Neuromorphometrics provides Christian Haselgrove, the NITRC Moderator and Site Administrator, who has been Chief Neuroinformatics Officer of Neuromorphometrics since 2006. While the major component of his work at Neuromorphometrics is NITRC, past and continuing work includes designing, building, and running the Internet Analysis Tools Registry at the Massachusetts General Hospital and serving on the NIfTI Data Format Working Group since its formation. Nueromorphometrics also provides the following domain curators: Giorgio Ascoili, Ph.D, Arnaud Delorme, Ph.D., Karl Helmer, Ph.D., Steven Bressler, Ph.D., Li Shen, Ph.D., and formerly, David Boas, Ph.D. and Randy Gollub, Ph.D. For more information about Neuromorphometrics, see Andrew Worth at http://neuromorphometrics.com/.

UCSD Center for Research in Biological Systems

The NITRC website and NITRC Image Repository are hosted by the Center for Research in Biological Systems (CRBS; http://crbs.ucsd.edu), an organized research unit at UCSD, which facilitates an interdisciplinary infrastructure in which people from biology, medicine, chemistry, and physics can work with those from computer science and information technologies in collaborative research. Leading the CRBS team hosting NITRC is Dr. Jeffrey Grethe. CRBS researchers have been at the forefront of neuroinformatics with involvement in NSF's National Partnership for Advanced Computational Infrastructure, one of the first projects to provide an advanced cyber-infrastructure for the scientific community, to playing a key role in the building of the Biomedical Informatics Research Network and the National Database for Autism Research, and to many high profile informatics projects such as the Neuroscience Information Framework (NIF; http://neuinfo.org), the NIDDK Information Network (dkNET; http://dknet.org), and the Research Resource Identification Initiative (https://scicrunch.org/resources). CRBS consists of a unique and well-established partnership between computer scientists, biomedical scientists, and engineers whose application of information technologies is accelerating the pace of discovery in health research.
