An interview with MSI PI Damien Fair (professor, Institute of Child Development (ICD); Pediatrics; co-director, Masonic Institute for the Developing Brain) appeared recently in the magazine Minnesota Monthly. The interview discusses his research into ADHD and autism, as well as his academic activism. It can be read on the magazine’s website: This U of M Brain Science “Genius” Has Justice on His Mind.

Professor Fair uses MSI to analyze various types of MRI data used to study the mechanisms and principles that underlie the developing brain. He received a MacArthur Foundation “genius grant” last year.
