Siemens Institute for Advanced Medicine Opening in Winnipeg

Area Development Online Research Desk (Location Canada 2009)
The $150 million Siemens Institute for Advanced Medicine (SIAM) is opening in downtown Winnipeg's Health Sciences Centre campus. The 80,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art facility is an important addition to Winnipeg's medical and life sciences cluster, and will house up to 300 researchers and technical personnel who will investigate technological advances in the areas of infectious diseases, neurological sciences, and neurosurgery.

Among the technologies being incorporated into the facility are a high-resolution PET/CT scanner and Manitoba's first cyclotron, Canada's first Artiste linear accelerator, Winnipeg's first mobile MRI (developed in Winnipeg by IMRIS Inc.) to allow real-time magnetic resonance imaging during surgery, and Winnipeg's second Gamma Knife.
