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 [ PR Newswire - Canada Newswire ].
