Dr Celia Greenwood is a founding Scientific Director
The Ludmer Centre is a transdisciplinary, multicentre collaboration that unites, among other domains, research in genetics, epigenetics, neuroimaging, neuroscience, statistics and computer sciences. The Centre’s mission is to drive innovative big-data research into normal and abnormal brain development.
The Ludmer Centre …
Builds innovative neuroinformatics infrastructure, datasets & algorithms
Leads and supports ‘big-data’ research in brain health, specifically, mental illness and neurodegenerative research
Invests in the future: mentoring and training new researchers
To accomplish this, the Ludmer Centre brings together cutting-edge neuroscience infrastructure and world-renowned researchers from three leading research institutions, all of which are McGill University centres:
- the Douglas University Mental Health Institute,
- the Jewish General Hospital’s Lady Davis Institute, and
- the Montreal Neurological Institute.
The Ludmer Centre unites four complementary research pillars led by three Scientific Directors, world-renowned leaders in their field, supported by a growing cadre of dynamic early-career researchers and trainees.
Genomics, Bioinformatics & Statistical Genetics Pillar: Dr Celia Greenwood leads the Genomics, Bioinformatics & Statistical Genetics Pillar. She is a Professor in the departments of Oncology, Human Genetics, and Epidemiology; Biostatistics & Occupational Health; and Division of Cancer Epidemiology and Director of the Quantitative Life Sciences PhD program at McGill University; and a Senior Scientist at the Lady Davis Institute’s Centre for Clinical Epidemiology.
Neuroimaging & Neuroinformatics Pillars: Dr Alan Evans leads the Neuroimaging & Neuroinformatics pillars: the McGill Centre for Integrative Neuroscience (MCIN). He is a James McGill Professor of Neurology & Neurosurgery, Psychiatry, and Biomedical Engineering and Director of the McGill Centre for Integrative Neuroscience (MCIN) at McGill University.
Genomic & Epigenetics Pillar: Dr Michael Meaney leads the Genomic/Epigenetics Pillar: the Sackler Program for Epigenetics & Psychobiology. He is a James McGill Professor of Psychiatry and Neurology & Neurosurgery, a Senior Researcher at the Douglas Mental Health University Institute, and the Director of the Sackler Program for Epigenetics & Psychobiology at McGill University.
