There is always a wide range of ongoing studies at CISC, using MRI or PET-CT to examine diverse aspects of brain function and structure. These studies continue to improve our understanding of brain and body function and are helping in the development of new treatment strategies.

If you want to be personally involved in any of our ongoing studies, or simply wish to know more about upcoming studies, please get in touch at Our current studies please look through the projects below and email the relevant researcher in charge of recruiting volunteers.
