Our team of MRI Scientists works on the development of new imaging techniques and on the investigation of magnetic resonance signal generation in biological tissues. We work closely with the MRI research facilities at BC Children’s Hospital and at UBC (The Child & Family Research Imaging Facility and the UBC MRI Research Centre). We are physicists within the departments of Physics and Astronomy, Pediatrics, and Radiology. Our specific interests are MR signal formation in the presence of magnetically inhomogeneous tissues, such as nerve fibres or blood vessels and the application of our new MRI techniques to the investigation of tissue damage and repair in brain injury due to preterm birth, multiple sclerosis, and traumatic brain injury. We collaborate with various researchers from the departments of Physics and Astronomy, Pediatrics, Radiology, Neurology, Pathology, and internationally.
