Science on Tap

Science on Tap is a weekly Friday afternoon social where members of the Martinos community gather to eat, maybe have a libation or two, and get to know each other's work a little better. Every meeting features a 10 to 15 minute talk by a Martinos investigator about his or her latest research, inc...

Why & How

The Why & How seminar series is designed to introduce research assistants, graduate students, and postdoctoral and clinical fellows - really, anyone who is interested - to the many tools used in the Center. These include software tools and most of the major imaging modalities wielded by Marti...

Particularly, a key questionĀ to answer is how the brain is connected to form the substrates of complexĀ functions and what goes wr...

Nanodiamond-enhanced MRI: A Dazzling New Approach to Imaging

Nanodiamonds ā€“ synthetic industrial diamonds only a few nanometers in size ā€“ have recently attracted considerable attention because of the potential they offer for the targeted delivery of vaccines and cancer drugs as well asĀ for other uses. Thus far, options for imaging nanodiamonds have been li...

New Software Improves Ability to Determine the Cause of Stroke

Determining the cause of an ischemic stroke is critical to preventing a second oneĀ and is a primary focus in the evaluation of stroke patients. But for all theĀ importance of identifying the cause, physicians have long lacked a robust and objective means to doĀ so. Now a team of investigators at...
