We are happy to announce that Dr. David Rudko is joining the BIC’s MRI Unit as the Research Assistant (part-time) in charge of the 7-T small animal MRI operations. If you are interested in accessing the scanner, please contact David david [dot] rudko [at] mcgill [dot] ca (directly).
David is also a Postdoctoral Fellow with Drs. Arnold and Narayanan, funded by a fellowship from the Multiple Sclerosis Society of Canada and the CIHR Neuroinflammation Training Program.
The overall focus of David's research is the application of novel high field MRI methodology in conjunction with biophysical modeling, to augment the current understanding of brain anatomy and physiology. He completed his PhD in Physics (with a specialization in ultra-high field MRI Medical Physics) under the supervision of Dr. Ravi Menon (Canada Research Chair in Functional and Molecular Imaging) at the University of Western Ontario in March, 2014. Prior to his PhD work, he completed a Master’s Program in Physics (Radiation Therapy Medical Physics, CAMPEP accredited) at the University of Victoria.
David will speak at the BIC Lecture Series on Apr 18, 2016: “Ultra-High Field MRI: Methodological Considerations and Applications” .
