  • Assistant Professor,  Department of Neurology and Neurosurgery, Faculty of Medicine, McGill University;
  • Leads the Neuroinformatics for Personalized Medicine (NeuroPM) lab at the Montreal Neurological Institute & Hospital;
  • Principal Investigator, Ludmer Centre for Neuroinformatics & Mental Health.

Prof. Iturria-Medina leads the Neuroinformatics for Personalized Medicine lab (Neuro-PM), where they focus on defining and implementing multiscale and multifactorial brain models for understanding neurological disorders and identifying effective personalized interventions.

Prof. Iturria-Medina's research has spanned neurodegeneration modelling, brain multimodal connectivity estimation, and statistical analysis for characterizing/predicting abnormal brain states. He is currently focusing on the creation and validation of integrative molecular, neuroimaging, and computational tools for understanding complex causal interactions among ageing, neurodegeneration and different therapeutic conditions.

The goal of the Neuro-PM lab is to define and implement multiscale and multifactorial brain models for understanding neurological disorders and identifying effective personalized interventions. The lab combines molecular, imaging and cognitive data using integrative mathematical modeling to create both individual and population-based mechanistic brain models. All computational tools are shared with the scientific community via a cross-platform user-friendly software (NeuroPM-box). These innovative models are expected to inform drug discovery as well as identify the best pharmaceutical intervention suited for different patients.
