About NINC

NINC is located in the Djavad Mowafaghian Centre for Brain Health’s Koerner Laboratories at UBC Hospital. The NeuroImaging and NeuroComputation Centre (NINC) manages and provides support to the community to make the most of advanced microscopy and imaging systems as well as high performance computing infrastructure.


Our Principles

Our aim is to maximize the use of our imaging and computational resources to benefit the DMCBH community.

NINC resources are available to all NINC member labs on a first come, first serve basis.
NINC member labs pay an annual fee for access, training and consultation.

Under the leadership of Dr. Kurt Haas and Dr. Tim Murphy, NINC is an important hub serving the UBC neuroscience community. By leveraging the centre’s expertise in experimental design, technology development, quantitative and automated data analysis and advanced imaging and microscopy techniques, we’re advancing basic science research and accelerating the process of discovery.

NINC provides opportunities to foster connections both within the neuroscience community and outside of it, creating interdisciplinary links between researchers in neuroscience, physics, engineering, math and computer science.


  • Consultation regarding experimental design with attention to techniques, data management and analysis.
  • Support for in-house prototyping of new instrumentation and technology including assistance in design and fabrication including 3D printing.
  • Support for in-house development of data analysis pipelines to enable high throughput, automated workflows.
  • Provide access and training to advanced imaging and light microscopy equipment including: multiphoton microscopy, fluorescence lifetime imaging, in vivo imaging, live cell imaging, etc.
