MRI Research Facility

 

Under the direction of Dr. Bruce Bjornson (Scientific Director), a full complement of highly specialized personnel collaborate with health researchers and their teams to support the scientific and research mandate of BC Children's Hospital and improve health outcomes for children and families. Since its opening in 2012, the BCCH MRI Research Facility has emerged as a nationally recognized health research imaging facility that supports and promotes opportunities for research, teaching and learning.

 

The BCCH MRI Research Facility acknowledges the vision, leadership and significant contributions of former directors Dr. Steven Milller (original CFI award recipient), Dr. Kenneth Poskitt (Scientific Director until June, 2013), Dr. Tim Oberlander (CFI Project Lead 2012-2017), and Dr. Deborah Giaschi (Director of Operations 2012-2018).
