Federal, provincial funding for high-tech robotic arm and MRI scanners will further research that benefits people from head to toe.
A group of researchers, led by Christian Beaulieu and Sandy McEwan, received $5.5 million in CFI funding and $5.5 million in Research Capacity Program support to upgrade two pieces of equipment and purchase a new piece of equipment. In the Peter S. Allen MR Research Centre, the 1.5-tesla MRI scanner will be replaced with a 3-tesla MRI scanner, and critical upgrades will also be made to the 4.7-tesla MRI-the second-strongest MRI scanner in the country and one of only two MRIs in the world at that strength. This scanner can generate brain images of unprecedented quality.
