Richard L. Sidman received his M.D. degree from Harvard Medical School. He is Bullard Professor of Neuropathology, Emeritus and Head of the Division of Neurogenetics at Harvard Medical School and the New England Regional Primate Research Center. His research interests include analysis of cell proliferation, migration, differentiation and degeneration in the mammalian brain, particularly as expressed in mice with inherited diseases of the nervous system. He has long been involved in teaching neuroanatomy, neuropathology, and developmental neurobiology. He is the Principal Invesigator on this High Resolution Brain Atlas project. Contact Richard Sidman.

Bela Kosaras obtained his M.D. degree from the Medical University of Pecs in Hungary. He specialized in anatomy and neurology and taught histology and embryology in Pecs. He currently works as a staff scientist in Harvard Medical School. His interests include inherited retinal diseases and disorders of myelination. He is involved in the image acquisition, histology and neuroanatomy aspects of the High Resolution Brain Atlas project. Contact Bela Kosaras.

Bijoy Misra received his Ph.D. degree in Physics from the University of Poona in India and studied applied mathematics and atmospheric sciences at Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He is an expert in computer graphics and image processing and is in the Faculty of Computer Science at Harvard Extension School. He is involved with the processing and display of images and the informatics methodologies used in the High Resolution Brain Atlas project. Contact Bijoy Misra.

Stephen Senft received his Ph.D. degree in Neuroscience from Washington University, St. Louis. He co-founded Vital Images, Inc. and for them wrote VoxelMath, a 3D image manipulation and analysis program. His interests include developmental neuroanatomy and computer simulation of brain networks. He is a lecturer in Neuroscience at Yale University. Steve is developing new segmentation techniques and is involved in the 3D visualization and analysis procedures in the High Resolution Brain Atlas project. Contact Steve Senft.
