Young Scientists at #LINO70: Ravichandran Rajkumar – Open Science and Data Sharing in Neuroscience
Dr. Ravichandran Rajkumar is working at Uniklinik RWTH Aachen and Forschungszentrum Jülich on multimodal neuroimaging – a very interdisciplinary field of research. He will participate in the 70th Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting.
"Without any doubt, the field of neuroimaging research is benefitting and growing from openly available datasets and tools. In neuroimaging research, data sharing and open access have been common for a long time and even prior to the pandemic, efforts were being made to make “open science” a reality. A few examples include the openly accessible datasets from OpenNEURO, the Human Connectome Project, the UK Biobank, etc. These invaluable resources are well known among the community and are frequently used. In addition to data, most of the popular tools being used by the neuroimaging community are also open source and crowd developed solutions."
