Responsibilities will include undergraduate teaching and administration. A working knowledge of French will be advantageous. Intramural private practice facilities are available.
We are glad to announce that the Louise and Alan Edwards Foundation is now providing generous support to the BIC PET and Cyclotron Unit, through a grant obtained by long-time BIC user and affiliated member Dr. Petra Schweinhardt, Assistant Professor at McGill's Alan Edwards Centre for Research on Pain. This grant goes towards supporting the highly-qualified personnel of our Cyclotron/PET Unit.
Please join me in applauding two of our residents who have assumed very important leadership roles.
On behalf of myself and our residency program I heartily congratulate Dr. Annie Trepanier, an R5 in our program, for taking on the role of president of the Federation of Medical Residents of Quebec and Dr. Aris Hadjinicolaou for stepping up as president of the Association of Residents of McGill.
The Museum of Natural Sciences of the Royal Belgian Institute of Natural Sciences has just opened a new permanent exhibition in Brussels: 'The gallery of Humankind'. The Museum has asked Dr. D. Louis Collins whether they could produce a 3-D print of the historical Colin27 brain. This brain is that of a human volunteer scanned 27 times in an MRI, back in 1998.
The brain shrinks over the course of the day, ending up smaller in the evening – before returning to its full size the next morning. That’s according to a new study from BIC Principal Investigators Arnold and Collins and collaborators, based on an analysis of about 10,000 MRI scans.
Professors Sylvain Baillet (BIC Principal investigator) and Matt Kinsella (Dept of Bioengineering) have won the first Biomedical Engineering Collaborative Research Project competition held by McGill’s Department of Biomedical Engineering, for their project titled:
Millisecond in vivo imaging of nanoparticle circulation and uptake in brain cancer therapy.
Time is brain: for every minute a stroke is left untreated, 2 million brain cells are destroyed. The sooner patients are treated, the higher the chances of survival with fewer disabilities. Patients with acute strokes and transient ischemic attack (TIA) are assessed and treated at the right place, the right time and by the right professionals thanks to ultra-specialized stroke centres at the Montreal General Hospital and The Montreal Neurological Institute and Hospital.
