Ghassan Hamarneh’s project on the prediction of cognitive clinical
outcome of preterm babies from diffusion MRI was a semi-finalist in The
Cognition Challenge competition hosted by Johnson & Johnson Innovation.
The Cognition Challenge was a crowd-sourcing inspired challenge that
invited Canadian researchers and entrepreneurs to submit their solutions
to address problems of learning and memory related to Alzheimer’s
disease and cognitive disorders [
