screenshotAfter months of development, we are proud to announce the launch of the official website of the WashU-UMinn Human Connectome Project at

This website will have a prominent role in our mission of outreach and open communication with the scientific community and other interested parties, and will be constantly evolving over the 5-year lifespan of the project. At this early stage, you can find a depth of information about our plans for Phase 1 of the project, a breakdown on the function and makeup of our Operational Teams, and a roster of our investigators and colleagues.

As our informatics work progresses, this site will also house the publicly-available Connectome of collected data on the structure and function of the human brain. We are excited for the possibilities for community and collaboration that this endeavor offers.

Many thanks to all who contributed to the writing, editing, coding and graphical development of the site.
