Advances in neuroimaging have already led to breakthroughs in the clinical management of neurological disorders and current developments hold comparable promise for neuropsychiatric disorders. e-Science and Grid technologies can help overcome these problems by the integration of image acquisition, storage and analysis, and by enhancing collaborative working within and between sites.

The NeuroGrid consortium will enhance collaboration between clinical, imaging and e-scientists to create a grid-based network of neuroimaging centres and a neuroimaging tool-kit. Sharing data, experience and expertise will facilitate the archiving, curation, retrieval and analysis of imaging data from multiple sites and enable large-scale clinical studies.

NeuroGrid will be developed by simultaneous activity at three discrete, but integrated levels. The first level will establish the Grid connectivity and utilise the experience of e-Diamond. The second is the development of the Grid-enabled toolkit and image normalisation capabilities, and will build on the services developed within the IXI project. The third level is the 3 exemplars: each aiming to solve a set of specific, but generalisable problems. The clinical exemplars provide the data and the real world clinical applications and problems that NeuroGrid is designed to solve. For users, NeuroGrid is intended to appear as an integrated capability consisting of services, both database and analysis, accessed through simple portals.
