Today Catherine Lebel Ph.D. accepted a Peak Scholar Award from the University of Calgary for our lab’s innovative and collaborative research. Using creative strategies such as a children’s book about a rocketship adventure, our lab makes MRI scanning fun for young children. This has enabled critical research into early childhood development. Also, in collaboration with Child Life and other departments at the Children’s Hospital, these strategies are helping to improve clinical care by enabling children to undergo clinical MRI scans without sedation.
