The Integrated Brain Imaging Center (IBIC) is a research-dedicated technology center organized under the Radiology department of the University of Washington School of Medicine.
The mission of IBIC is to focus and foster interdisciplinary expertise in cognitive neuroscience, human neuroimaging, and medicine across departments and colleges at the University of Washington, and to pursue excellence and discovery in human neuroscience with imaging approaches.
IBIC includes a comprehensive image processing laboratory and affiliates closely with the MR Research Laboratory, that houses a research-dedicated Philips Achieva 3 Tesla MRI scanner, in order to provide the infrastructure for a productive collaboration of physical scientists, imaging scientists and neuroscientists.
Thus, IBIC is both a research resource center, led from Radiology but with an interdisciplinary character, and also a community of interacting scientists mutually invested in its research resources.
