The Brain Architecture Project began with a focus on informatics and on the human brain, with seed funding support provided by the WM Keck Foundation, and in collaboration with co-investigators Larry Swanson (USC), Hans Breiter (MGH), and John Doyle (Caltech).
The project has since received funding from the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) to systematically map brainwide connectivity at in wild-type as well as, in later stages, disease model mice, and to develop the analysis and visualization tools to ultimately provide the first mesoscopic connectivity map for the mouse brain. An announcement of the Transformative R01 award from the NIH director’s office is here.
An additional project, in collaboration with the Allen Institute for Brain Science, is funded by the National Institutes on Drug Abuse (NIDA), and seeks to examine brainwide co-expression patterns of genes related to addiction.
Partha Mitra additionally receives support from the Crick-Clay Professorship in Biomathematics at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory.
