Cape Universities Body Imaging Centre (CUBIC)
CUBIC is a leading imaging research facility focusing on problems specific to South Africa and the African continent. To this end, we strive towards research excellence and innovation, contribute to the development of scarce skills and human capacity, knowledge production and dissemination through publication in peer-reviewed journals as well as extensive national and international collaboration.
CUBIC is a joint initiative between the Universities of Stellenbosch and Cape Town, the Medical Research Council and Siemens. It is based at UCT’s Medical Campus at the Groote Schuur Hospital, housing a 3T Siemens Skyra full body scanner.
We gratefully acknowledge funding from the Technology Innovation Agency, the National Research Foundation, and the Cancer Research Trust for the purchase of the Siemens Skyra MRI scanner. We thank Siemens South Africa for the extended warranty.
