"Volunteering in research studies is easy and a great way to get involved in science. Everyone involved in my appointment was helpful and friendly, and they explained all the different things I did. I learned a lot about MRI scans and it was cool to see the images they captured." -K.
"Volunteering at the BRIC was simply too easy. The staff is extremely friendly. They took the time to clearly explain all the procedures and equipment, and I felt very comfortable during the imaging process. At the end of the session, I left feeling like I had helped, in a small way, with important research." -D.D.
"I recently participated in a research study requiring an fMRI at the Biomedical Research Imaging Center. I was originally wary of the procedure, yet the staff at the BRIC were highly competent, friendly, efficient, and explained everything to me in a way that put me at ease. The location is brand new, and everything feels state of the art. They even offered me a copy of my scan solely to appease my curiosity. I enjoyed my complete experience at the BRIC and I thank the staff for making a potentially stressful visit easy and pleasant." -N.P.
