Bienvenue au centre d’imagerie cérébrale McConnell (BIC) de l’Institut Neurologique de Montréal à l’Université McGill. Le but de la recherche multidisciplinaire du centre est de mieux comprendre les maladies neurologiques et neuropsychiatriques grâce aux techniques d’imagerie de pointe afin de pouvoir mieux les anticiper et les traiter. C’est avec cet objectif que nous développons et utilisons une vaste panoplie de méthodes d’imagerie depuis 1984. Nous sommes l’un des plus grands et plus actifs centre d’imagerie cérébrale au monde, avec 7 plateformes techniques différentes, 12 équipes de recherches, 100 étudiants gradués et chercheurs post-doctoraux. Notre équipe de 150 personnes offre aussi de nombreux services d’acquisition et d’analyse d’images à plus de 100 chercheurs nationaux et internationaux, pour un volume de plus de 2,500 sessions par an. Bienvenue au BIC!

It is our great pleasure to share with you the good news that Dr Nikola Stikov (BIC, Pike lab) has been selected as a Junior Fellow of the International Society for Magnetic Resonance in Medicine (ISMRM). Peter Jezzard (President of ISMRM) emphasized how the review committee was impressed with Nikola’s track record, academic potential and commitment to the #ISMRM through membership and attendance at ISMRM-sponsored events. Nikola has been selected as a presenter at the Society’s upcoming meeting in Milan, Italy (http://www.ismrm.org/14/).

Said Prof Jezzard, Nikola’s award is a reflection of both the excellent research conducted at the BIC and of the opportunities that our Centre gives to junior researchers. The benefits and recognition associated with this scheme should provide Nikola with significant assistance in his career.

Please join us in sending warm congratulations to Nikola for this significant achievement, early in his career.


The BIC and the entire Neuro community is sad to announce that Dr William Feindel, the BIC’s founding Director (1984–88) and former Neuro Director, passed away quietly on January 12, 2014 at The Neuro. Please see Dr Rouleau’s note below; a more detailed obituary will follow later this week. Dr Feindel has always been a passionate clinician, with a strong drive for groundbreaking techniques and imaging science at the MNI. With Drs Melançon and Ethier, around the late 1970′s, he contributed the installation of the first Body-Scan tomograph in Canada and about 5 years later, of the first MR scanner in the country. He also promoted the development at the BIC of the first PET system in the world to detect brain tumors and stroke. Everyone at the BIC continues to be inspired by his passion for innovation in imaging technology. Dr Feindel has been the most faithful attendee of our weekly BIC lectures and many students will remember his most-germane questions as an auditor of their MSc and PhD defense.
