Simon Fraser University and Fraser Health have unveiled the SFU ImageTech Lab, a world-class clincial research facility that SFU states is the first-of-its-kind in Western Canada. The facility will advance brain and body research and will help to ensure British Columbia is globally competitive in advanced brain and body imaging. “The SFU ImageTech Lab adds to the university’s strengths in health technologies and our growing reputation as a national innovation leader,” stated SFU President Andrew Petter. “By fostering research that contributes to healthier communities, it will also help us to advance our mission as Canada’s Engaged University.” The lab was funded by a number of donors, including the Western Economic Diversification Canada, Canada Foundation for Innovation, and the BC Knowledge Development Fund.
