The HBIC also offers an excellent environment for education. Students at all levels, both in the clinical and basic sciences, are encouraged to enhance their educational experience by working with state-of-the-art equipment as well as with an outstanding Faculty in such diverse neuroimaging fields as MR spectroscopy, functional MRI (fMRI), diffusion tractography, and MEG. These opportunities will be further enhanced by the opportunity to design and carry out experiments in animal models using the 9.4T animal system.
HBIC Teaching and mentorship program
Hoglund faculty are involved in mentoring graduate students, post doctoral fellows and junior faculty in NIH-sponsored training programs. To learn more about these programs, please contact Dr. William Brooks, the HBIC Director.

Hoglund Brain Imaging Center (HBIC) and Trauma Services jointly sponsor a Traumatic Brain Injury support group that meets the second Tuesday of each month at HBIC. This community service project allows any traumatic brain injury patient from the community to attend and helps to provide continuity of care for KU patients after they leave the hospital. Support, information, and education are provided for patients and their significant others. Meetings are led by Jo Ann Lierman, RNC, PhD, HBIC Nurse Clinician and Dolly Wood, COTA/L from the KUMC Occupational Therapy department.
