BIRC (Biomedical Imaging Research Centre)

The Biomedical Imaging Research Centre (BIRC) is a multi-disciplinary, multi-institutional group comprised of over 350 personnel, including scientists, engineers, physicists, students, and support staff in London, Ontario, Canada. The imaging research groups are tightly integrated with the major hospitals in London, enabling the discovery and development of innovative imaging techniques and instrumentation to improve the understanding, diagnosis and treatment of human diseases. The group provides specialized training programs for graduate students through various departments of Western University and the Research Institutes listed below. The group as a whole has a research infrastructure valued at over $100 million.
