Welcome
 

The Experimental Neuroimaging Laboratory is associated with the Department of Neurology and the Biomedical Research Imaging Center (BRIC) at the  University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill.

Location:

     9.4 Tesla MRI facility: 121 Medical Research Building D, 124 Mason Farm Rd, Chapel Hill, NC 27599

     Electrophysiology lab: 127 Medical Research Building D, 124 Mason Farm Rd, Chapel Hill, NC 27599

     Electronic lab: 131 Medical Research Building D, 124 Mason Farm Rd, Chapel Hill, NC 27599

     Office: 3104 Bioinformatics Building, 130 Mason Farm Rd, CB#7513, Chapel Hill, NC 27599

Our lab focuses on developing and applying innovative magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) technologies to study neurovascular functions in the brain and the eye, with an ultimate goal of translating preclinical indications to successful clinical development. We are seeking a highly motivated postdoc interested in high-field (9.4 Tesla) MRI research. Experience in (i) small animal functional MRI, (ii) rodent model of stroke, or (iii) deep brain stimulation is desirable. Please contact Dr. Shih (shihy@unc.edu) for more information.
