Montreal Heart Institute, University of Montreal
Dr. Nikola Stikov is assistant professor of Biomedical Engineering, a researcher at the Montreal Heart Institute, and co-director of NeuroPoly, the Neuroimaging Research Laboratory at École Polytechnique, University of Montreal. His research runs the gamut of quantitative magnetic resonance imaging, from basic issues of standardization and accuracy, to biophysical modeling, microstructural imaging and clinical applications. His group is particularly interested in developing and validating novel biomarkers for non-invasive characterization of the brain and heart microstructure during development, disease and treatment, thus pushing the boundaries of the emerging field of in vivo histology.
In 2014 Dr. Stikov was elected Junior Fellow of the ISMRM, and in 2015 he joined the Editorial Board of the journal Magnetic Resonance in Medicine (MRM), spearheading the journal's Highlights initiative. Continuing with his science outreach actitivities, in 2016 Dr. Stikov established the official blog of the Organization for Human Brain Mapping (OHBM), and in 2018 he became chair of the communications committee of the Canadian Open Neuroscience Platform (CONP).
