The USC Mark and Mary Stevens Neuroimaging and Informatics Institute (INI) is a world leader in the development of advanced computational and scientific approaches for the comprehensive mapping of brain structure and function. The INI comprises four centers: the Laboratory of Neuro Imaging (LONI), the Imaging Genetics Center (IGC), the Center for Image Acquisition (CIA), and the Center for Integrative Connectomics (CIC). We aim to enhance discovery through the application of imaging and information technologies to the study of the brain. We contribute to large-scale data sharing efforts in Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease, and relentlessly search for biomarkers of multiple brain diseases and neurodegenerative disorders.
The INI houses a multidisciplinary collaborative of experts in neuroimaging, data science, radiology, engineering, and beyond. Our team collects and analyzes imaging, genetic, clinical, and behavioral data to map the human brain and understand its role across the lifespan in both health and disease.
We are always seeking ambitious, curious, and enthusiastically collaborative researchers with a commitment to excellence and scientific integrity. All members of the INI are integral to our work and are given the opportunity to thrive alongside diverse and talented team members to help solve multidimensional scientific problems.
Together, we tackle some of the biggest challenges facing the field of neuroscience.
