As founding Director of the new Columbia MR Research Center, I along with my many talented colleagues have launched a center on a larger scale made possible by a distributed model. In this Center hosting 16 MR systems, the Fu School of Engineering and Applied Science, the Columbia University Irving Medical Center, the Zuckerman Mind Brain Behavior Institute, the New York State Psychiatric Institute, and the Nathan Kline Institute for Psychiatric Research are linked together and with collaborators around the world through a commercial cloud platform for coordinated administration, essentially infinite data logging and maximum on-demand computing required by a modern, globally networked laboratory.
