Preclinical Imaging Research Centre

Robarts Preclinical Imaging Research Centre, located on the third floor, is furnished with state-of-the-art non-invasive small animal imaging equipment complete with a dedicated animal surgery and preparation room. This facility was designed specifically to give investigators the ability to exploit the best in specialized small animal imaging technology to further basic and applied research.


We encourage participation in collaborative research studies for the development and validation of pre-clinical imaging biomarkers and new animal models of disease.  Our core facility will include both basic scanning services, and a variety of additional services to help identify new imaging applications including:

  • Research plan design
  • Protocol development (animal model, drug treatment, histopathology)
  • Imaging protocol design (surrogate endpoints, functional analysis, validation)
  • Data collection and analysis
