A Django app to manage neuroscience research

Project description


Join the chat at


pylabber is a collaborative open-source project meant to facilitate research.

This Django project provides the infrastructure for scientific work, and is built and maintained to be as flexible and as extendible as possible.

Currently, the project hosts two apps; accounts and research.

  • accounts manages users (researchers) and labs.
  • research manages studies, study groups, and subjects.

This architecture is meant to be as abstract as possible, in order to allow for it to easily lend itself to a wide variety of research disciplines.

At the moment, this codebase supports mainly neuroimaging research. However, pylabber provides a RESTful API that may be adapted and integrated into your own field of research.

Data Integration

Currently, pylabber has only one available extension:

  • django_mri - an abstraction over django_dicom meant to provide format agnostic tools to manage and interact with MRI data.


For a front-end project built on top of pylabber, see vuelabber.


The purpose of pylabber is to give researchers the power to manage and share their data in an open and easy manner. No more hard-drives with valuable data forgotten in random laboratories' drawers, no more in-house, untested and unmaintained scripts to inefficiently query your data, stored locally in some makeshift directory structure. It is meant to give a unified and community-based solution for all of the vacuous technical work researchers often have to overcome instead of doing research.
