KeynoteOverview of the BRIC

The BRIC houses state-of-the art imaging equipment, direct innovative imaging research programs, and provides outstanding skill and knowledge in imagining applications; specifically, the BRIC houses human imaging scanner, including at 3T MR, a hybrid PET/MR, a PET/CT and a 7T scanner. Similar imaging equipment for small animal studies is also available, allowing for seamless translation from bench to bedside. A cyclotron and radiochemisty facility capable of synthesizing radiotracers is also housed in the BRIC. Together with talented BRIC faculty with expertise in imaging acquistion, probe designs, analysis and statistics, and pre- and clinical applications, we strive to serve the needs of the University and to advance the rapidly developing science of biomedical imaging.

Symposium Information

Thank you to everyone who helped make the 2018 Symposium a success!!

The 2018 Triangle Imaging Symposium at UNC BRIC, will feature lectures by speakers from the University of Minnesota, UNC, Duke, NCSU and Wake Forest University and is open to the entire scientific community. This year, a broad spectrum of topics will be covered, from the Brain Connectome project, to the effect of music on brain function, to novel MR and OCT imaging techniques for the lungs, to advanced ultrasound methodologies for tissue characterization.

The Symposium also includes a Poster Session with presentations given by students, trainees, residents, and faculty to highlight imaging research projects within and outside UNC. The symposium will take place on Wednesday, April 18th, 2018.
