Located in the historic oceanside city of Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada, my lab is based in the largest academic health centre in Atlantic Canada.  Halifax is a vibrant cosmopolitan city with great student life, beaches, theater, museums and a harbourfront boardwalk that runs through the downtown core.  From the Dalhousie University campus you are only a 5-minute walk to the ocean!
With direct integration between the hospitals and the faculties of medicine, science and engineering at Dalhousie University, my lab blurs the boundaries between scientific and medical disciplines to provide a broad educational experience.  Students, scientists and technologists in my lab come from backgrounds ranging from physics to biomedical engineering and neuroscience, and is excellent environment to get interdisciplinary research training in the physics of medical imaging.
Steven Beyea, Ph.D.
Associate Professor
Dalhousie University



I am an Associate Professor in the Department of Radiology at Dalhousie University, and hold cross-appointments in the Department of Physics, School of Biomedical Engineering, and the School of Health Science. My research focuses primarily on MRI, PET/SPECT and MEG imaging physics.


Additionally, I am also the Scientific Lead for the Biomedical Translational Imaging Centre (BIOTIC), a hospital-based imaging research centre with a host of cutting-edge infrastructure for human and pre-clinical research.


There are numerous opportunities for students to participate in research in my lab at both the undergraduate and graduate level.  Former students of mine have gone on to positions in imaging research labs around the world, at universities including University of Birmingham (UK), Stanford University and Harvard University.
