Welcome to the McKenzie Lab Website

Meet Dr. McKenzie

I am a Professor in the Department of Medical Biophysics at the University of Western Ontario. I also have appointments in the Physics Department and Biomedical Engineering program at Western as well as being an Associate Scientist at the Robarts Research Institute and the Lawson Health Research Institute. I have arrived back at Western (July 2007) after spending several years doing MRI research in the United States.
