Christian Beckmann is a professor at the Donders Centre for Cognitive Neuroimaging, the Donders Institute for Brain, Cognition and Behavior and Radboud University.
Beckmann’s research focus is on developing novel methods for imaging neurosciences, including the development of tools and technology for the analysis of neuroimaging data, imaging biomarkers and advanced diagnosis systems for the neural system.
His laboratory uses a number of imaging techniques, such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), functional MRI, magnetoencephalography and electroencephalography, and integrates this with other types of data, such as genetic or questionnaire information.
Beckmann’s laboratory has been involved in the Human Connectome Project and the Developing Human Connectome Project, both designed to map the entire human brain to connect its structure to function and behavior.
He was awarded the Organization for Human Brain Mapping Wiley Young Investigator Award in 2011 and a Wellcome Trust Strategy Award in 2012.
