Vince Calhoun

Vince Calhoun has been elected as a Fellow of the Organization of Human Brain Mapping (OHBM). OHBM is an international society dedicated to using neuroimaging to discover the organization of the human brain.

Calhoun is the Distinguished University Professor of Psychology at Georgia State University. He is the director of the Center for Advanced Brain Imaging, a joint venture between Georgia State University and Georgia Tech. Calhoun is also the founding director of the Center for Translational Research in Neuroimaging and Data Science, a tri-institutional effort supported by Georgia State, Georgia Tech, and Emory University to increase cooperation among Atlanta brain imaging researchers.

Calhoun is a Georgia Research Alliance (GRA) Eminent Scholar in Neuroscience and Neuroinformatics, and he also holds appointments in the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Georgia Tech and in neurology and psychiatry at Emory University School of Medicine. His research is focused on developing new ways to analyze and use complex brain imaging data by drawing on advanced machine-learning approaches.

Vince Calhoun

Vince Calhoun has been named as the recipient of the 2021 Honorific Award for Outstanding Translational Research from the Schizophrenia International Research Society (SIRS). Calhoun will receive this award on April 17 during the SIRS annual meeting, which will be held virtually this year.

Calhoun is being recognized as an internationally renowned research scholar in the development and use of advanced neuroimaging approaches to study the biological underpinnings of schizophrenia. According to his nomination, Calhoun is a pioneer in the fields of data-driven brain connectivity, dynamic connectivity, and multimodal data fusion, and he has been a key visionary in the development of neuroimage-based markers of brain health and disorder. 

Then nomination goes on to say that Calhoun has shown an impressive ability to build a bridge between the development of advanced algorithms and their extensive application. He has been a leader in open science, making these technologies available to all in the field through multiple software tools, tutorials, and training workshops. 

Calhoun is a Georgia Research Alliance (GRA) Eminent Scholar in Neuroscience and Neuroinformatics, and he also holds appointments in the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Georgia Tech and in neurology and psychiatry at Emory University School of Medicine. He is the founding director of the Center for Translational Research in Neuroimaging and Data Science (TReNDS), a tri-institutional effort supported by Georgia State University, Georgia Tech and Emory to increase cooperation among Atlanta brain imaging researchers. He is also the founder of the Center for Advanced Brain Imaging, a joint venture between Georgia State and Georgia Tech.

Vince Calhoun

Vince Calhoun has been chosen as the recipient of the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society (EMBS) Technical Achievement Award. Calhoun is receiving this award “for contributions to data-driven processing of multimodal brain imaging and genetic data.”

Calhoun and his research team have developed data-driven approaches to combine or “fuse” multimodal brain imaging and genomics data, such as structural and functional MRI and single nucleotide polymorphism data. They are using these approaches to extract biological fingerprints of healthy and disordered brains resulting from conditions such as schizophrenia and Alzheimer’s disease. These approaches are also being used to develop predictors of brain disorder, treatment response, and other measures with a goal of moving toward biology-based markers of illness. 

Calhoun is a Georgia Research Alliance Eminent Scholar and the founding director of the Center for Translational Research in Neuroimaging and Data Science (TReNDS) at Georgia State University. TReNDS is a tri-institutional effort among Georgia State, Georgia Tech, and Emory University. Effective July 1, Calhoun will also lead the Georgia State/Georgia Tech Center for Advanced Brain Imaging (CABI). He holds faculty appointments in Tech’s School of Electrical and Computer Engineering and the Wallace H. Coulter Department of Biomedical Engineering.
