Michael Milham

Vice President & Director of Research
Child Mind Institute

Dr. Milham is one of the United State’s most prolific neuroimaging researchers, with over 250 articles published since 2005 and recognition as a Clarivate Highly Cited Researcher (top 0.1 percent) every year since 2014. His research interests include investigating how differences in brain function and organization may underlie differing forms of mental illness and seeking to chart the course of brain development in healthy and affected children. To accomplish these goals, he has advanced open science and Big Data research agendas. Specifically, he founded the International Neuroimaging Data-Sharing Initiative (INDI), which has worked to advance open science in the brain imaging community through the creation of open data sharing, including the ADHD 200, Autism Brain Imaging Data Exchange (ABIDE), Consortium for Reliability and Reproducibility (CoRR) and PRIMatE Data Exchange (PRIME-DE). Dr. Milham is also the founding Director of the Nathan Kline Institute Rockland Sample initiative, which has worked to map brain development, maturation and aging (ages 6 to 85 years old) in 1,000 individuals from the Rockland Community, openly sharing all data generated. He also founded the Child Mind Institute Healthy Brain Network – an initiative aiming to create a large-scale (10,000 participants) resource to study child and adolescent mental health. Most recently, he founded the CMI Next Generation Digital Therapeutics for Child and Youth Behavioral Health initiative, and the CMI Youth Mental Health Academy - a community-based career development program for high school students aged 16+ from structurally marginalized communities.

Dr. Milham joins the newly established Stavros Niarchos Foundation Global Center for Child and Adolescent Mental Health at the Child Mind Institute as the lead of digital technologies and innovation.
