e Canadian Pediatric Imaging Platform (C-PIP): A platform to support research in child brain health


The Canadian Pediatric Imaging Platform (C-PIP) is studying how the brain develops using magnetic resonance imaging, also known as MRI. The project aims to learn more about how the brain changes across life. The project will also look at how conditions like preterm birth or concussion can disrupt the brain’s development. This project is a partnership between the Alberta Children’s Hospital and 2 other leading research centres in Canada. C-PIP will make it easier for researchers to share data between research sites in a secure way. This makes it possible for different researchers to use the same data to answer different questions.
