A number of students' PhD projects across institutions and sites have been supported by the use of equipment made available by VBIC.

Peter Yoo is a PhD student at Parkville, who is investigating developing a novel diagnostic tool for invasive intracranial electrode implantation treatments via real-time ultra high-field fMRI with neurofeedback at 7 Tesla.

Dr Jon Cleary's research is focused on multiple sclerosis which is an autoimmune condition characterised by inflammation and and destruction of the myelinated axonal fibres of the central nervous system.

The project Vascular mechanisms of neurodegeneration: drivers and determinants of dementia has been awarded $6.4 million to learn more about the biological causes dementia. The collaboration involves researchers from the University of Melbourne, the Florey Institute of Neuroscience and Mental Health, Monash University, University of Western Ontario in Canada and the University of California.

More information is available via the University of Melbourne website.

 

We are delighted to present the research of Shenjun Zhong. Shenjun is a PhD student at the MBI in Clayton, who is investigating accelerate algorithms in medical imaging processing and reconstruction using GPUs, especially for tractography algorithms in diffusion MRI imaging. He is working with Monash MASSIVE Computer Cluster.
