Brain Repair Centre links more than 100 world-class researchers and physicians specializing in groundbreaking treatments and technologies. The BRC's cell restoration program is unique in Canada and one of only four centres worldwide featuring state-of-the-art equipment and an electrophysiological imaging module.
The BRC and Dalhousie University are also working on a robotic, remote-manipulated drill for neurosurgical applications. This will enable a surgeon to control a surgical drill for emergency operative procedures over a high-speed network. Procedures such as this could provide life-saving medical care to remote communities where there are no neurosurgeons.
