IDEAS FOR MEETING

Routine meeting with chief statistician Mark Vangel at mvangel@mit.edu, vangel@nmr.mgh.harvard.edu and 617-726-6055

Dominik Meier Tina K etc."The AMIGO Neurosurgical Image/Case Repository". We can discuss the specs, infrastructure & desired function of the repository and get an overview/status of the data. Issues like what data is stored, how the data is curated and anonymized etc.

POSSIBLE SPEAKER: Philip De Jager, MD, PhD, associate neurologist in the Multiple Sclerosis Center at BWH, has been awarded a $7.9 million grant from the National Institute of Health (NIH) for his research on targeting effective interventions for Alzheimer's disease. See: http://www.brighamandwomens.org/About_BWH/publicaffairs/news/awards/Award_Honor.aspx?sub=0&PageID=1560

Specific People to Check In With Regarding Speaking at the Meeting

Possible speaker since Alex interested in drug delivery technology: http://news.harvard.edu/gazette/story/2013/10/a-tiny-time-released-treatment/ Omid Farokhzad, Associate Professor of Anesthesia at Harvard Medical School (HMS) .
