Introducing the Swiss Army Knife of Brain Research

We’re creating a whole new kind of data repository at the Ontario Brain Institute – a tool that will take brain research collaboration in Ontario to a new level.

Brain-CODE (“Centre for Ontario Data Exploration”) will be a rich mine of information covering multiple brain disorders and containing data from a wide range of disciplines – including behavioural science, imaging and genomics –gathered from across the province according to standardized measures and methods.

This unprecedented level of integration and interoperability will enable researchers to discover and explore new and complex relationships, leading to innovative new avenues of research and treatment. And because Brain-CODE contains research data from across Ontario, it will accelerate and enhance the recruitment of participants for clinical trials that test those ideas.
