Vascular biology imaging

Vascular biology imaging research group (VBIRG) at Sunnybrook Research Institute

The vascular biology imaging research group (VBIRG) is part of the physical sciences research platform and the Schulich Heart Research Program at Sunnybrook Research Institute (SRI). We work under the direction of Dr. Alan Moody, who is also the chief of medical imaging at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre and the new Women's College Hospital.

Our group engages in clinical and basic research of novel diagnostic imaging techniques, their applications on vascular diseases and various aspects of vascular biology. Specifically, we focus on a new form of MRI technique that has the capability of extracting diverse characteristics from tissue or organs noninvasively. We have access to SRI’s MRI facilities.

We are fully affiliated with the University of Toronto, and we offer graduate training positions for M.Sc., PhD and postdoctoral or post-health professional degree fellowships. Contact Dr. Moody with any questions about his research activities and current opportunities in our group.
