Meet the BIDS Steering Group

In October 2019, the BIDS community voted to ratify a new governance structure and to elect five members to oversee the development and adoption of the standard.

Each member of the steering group has their own priorities, but we share a common ambition: to help neuroimaging research more open, interoperable and efficient. We think the Brain Imaging Data Structure, the standard and its community, are a key pathway to achieve this goal.

In this blog post, each of the steering group members have explained a little about their current work, why they wanted to join the steering group, and where they hope we’ll go in the new year.
