Stockholm University Brain Imaging Centre (SUBIC) is happy to announce the awardees of the time grant of Spring 2022. The grant consists of free of charge access to one of the method platforms SUBIC offers, such as X-ray microscope, magnetic resonance imaging scanner and EEG.

The main purpose of the time grants is to promote usage of SUBIC's equipment among Stockholm University researchers not normally using this type of equipment in their work. The time grants allow users at Stockholm University to either collect pilot data for future grant applications or to collect data for their first complete study using one of SUBIC's instruments.
