The Victorian Biomedical Imaging Capability (VBIC) provides a coordinated network of capabilities and research capacity in biomedical imaging to support universities and medical research institutes.
The $25M investment by the Victorian State Government and the grant recipients, has provided the Victorian biomedical imaging research community with access to cutting-edge imaging equipment.
The VBIC establishment funding included the acquisition of seven instruments, recruitment of expert personnel, and new courses in biomedical imaging.
This initiative places Victoria as a key medical research location and facilitates collaboration with national and international partners.
Imaging Technologies available to researchers include; Computed Tomography (CT), Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), Positron Emission Tomography (PET), Magnetoencephalography (MEG) and others
