Tel Aviv University part of team launching global Human Brain Project
Date:11/13/2013

everything from gathering data on mouse brains to exploring the ethics of brain research. The subprojects are further divided into hundreds of individual tasks.

The TAU group is responsible for the medical data analysis task within the "Medical Informatics Platform." Dr. Marcus-Kalish is a data-modeling specialist, and Prof. Binjamini is an Israel prize laureate and a sought-after expert in statistical modeling and analysis and clinical trials. Along with other top TAU scientists, they are aggregating and analyzing clinical data and recruiting hospitals to participate in the project. By making use of existing tools and developing new ones, they hope to identify patterns and trends in data taken from dozens of hospitals including clinical tests, medical imaging, genetic data, and physiological tests that can be used to predict, prevent, and treat neurological disease. A data-mining algorithm the researchers previously developed and a new method for clinical trials pioneered by Prof. Binjamini will play parts in their work.

An essential task

"I think our role in the Human Brain Project is among the most important," says Dr. Marcus-Kalish, who helped develop the project's medical focus. "We will be trying to improve human well-being through the understanding of neurodegenerative brain diseases. With the world getting older, this is more essential to society than ever."

The Human Brain Project is harnessing talent from leading universities, companies, and research institutions. Partners include the University of Oxford, Yale University, IBM, and Germany's Forschungszentrum Jlich GmbH, one of the largest interdisciplinary research centers in Europe.
