Dr. Alex MacKay is Professor of Physics and Astronomy as well as Radiology at UBC. As well as his faculty position he is Director of the UBC MRI Research Centre and Director of the Medical Physics Program in Physics and Astronomy. Dr. Mackay's research includes the development of myelin water imaging – a technique which images myelin in the brain and spine. The use of this technique will allow scientists to investigate how MS lesions undergo demyelination and remyelination over time.
