Professor Stephen Smith
Professor of Biomedical Engineering
- Head of FMRIB Analysis Group
Steve Smith is Professor of Biomedical Engineering and head of the Analysis Group at The Oxford University Centre for Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging of the Brain (FMRIB). The Analysis Group, which he started in 1997, now comprises about 30 research fellows, postdocs, students and support staff, carrying out functional and structural brain image analysis and statistics research. The group has produced the brain image analysis software package FSL (FMRIB Software Library) which is widely used in many laboratories across the world. Recent personal research has concentrated on resting state networks, showing that these correspond closely to explicit functional networks as seen in task FMRI (Smith, PNAS, 2009), showing new networks on the basis of distinct temporal dynamics (Smith, PNAS, 2012), and most recently relating functional networks to behaviour and lifestyle (Smith, Nature Neuroscience, 2015). The FMRIB Analysis Group is playing a major role in several Big Data imaging projects, including: the Human Connectome Project, UK Biobank Brain Imaging, and the Developing Human Connectome Project.
