Funding by Michael J Fox Founcation: Radiomics and Radiogenomics of Parkinson’s Disease

We are pleased to announce new funding by The Michael J. Fox Foundation (PIs: Arman Rahmim, Vesna Sossi) to investigate “radiomics” of Parkinson’s disease (PD) as imaged using both SPECT and PET imaging, involving extensive shape and texture analysis. This work will be performed in close collaboration with the University of British Columbia and the Henry Ford Health System (elaborated further here). Combined with genomics data, we also hope to provide a radiogenomics framework, aiming to arrive at biomarkers of PD progression, which can provide better understanding of PD and significantly enhance assessment of disease modifying therapies.
