CUBIC is a joint initiative between the University of Cape Town, Stellenbosch University, Medical Research Council of South Africa and Siemens.

In 2017, research performed at CUBIC involved collaboration with over 80 institutions worldwide,and resulted in more than 60 publications in international and South African journals. In addition, as part of CUBIC's commitment to advancing public health, at least two Groote Schuur Hospital (GSH) patients are scanned daily at no cost. 



  • Each person accessing CUBIC (research assistant, participant and escort, if applicable) MUST complete an online self-screening risk assessment questionnaire BEFORE arrival at CUBIC.

  • The pre-screening risk assessment questionnaire can be found at: http://healthcheck.higherhealth.ac.za/

  • Access to CUBIC will be determined by the outcome of the risk assessment, as detailed in the following document here.
