How to find us
Peter S. Allen MR Research Centre is located in the basement of the University Hospital (Walter MacKenzie Centre, area 0A6), although it is a part of Department of Biomedical Engineering, Faculty of Medicine, University of Alberta. The unique location (right underneath the Emergency, and now also underneath the new Mazankowski Alberta heart institute) allows for wide range of clinical studies.

The easiest access to the MR Centre is via Mazankowski institute:
For getting dropped off, please use circle driveway at the front door of Mazankowsi (83rd avenue just west of 112 street), or use the hospital visitor parkade on the opposite (south) side of 83rd avenue.

Enter main Mazankowski front door on 83 avenue, go to statues at right, proceed down stairs (or take elevator down) - follow directions to ABACUS. Walk straight through to Abacus, and once inside, turn left; the MR centre is on the right in 20 metres.

There are several alternative routes from the University Hospital - for example, follow the "MR Research Centre" pointers on the basement/lower floor ("L" in elevators) of the hospital, or use the stairwell 87 (next to the ER exit-only door on the main floor).
