corree_cropped2_blue2Welcome to the website! My name is Corree (Cornelia) Laule and I’m an MRI physicist in the Departments of Radiology and Pathology & Laboratory Medicine at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada. I am also an associate member of the Department of Physics & Astronomy, a principal investigator at ICORD and a member of the Djavad Mowafaghian Centre for Brain Health. I conduct my research at the UBC MRI Research Centre and in the ICORD building.


I am interested in understanding the microstructural and pathological determinants which govern T1 and T2 relaxation measures in central nervous system (CNS) tissue. My key research areas include:

• quantitative MRI • T1 and T2 relaxation • brain • spinal cord • multiple sclerosis • CNS diseases •
• white matter • myelin water imaging • myelin • neurodegeneration • spinal cord injury • histology-MRI correlation •
• in vivo • post mortem • formalin-fixed tissue • lipids •

I was the recipient of the Women Against MS Transitional Career Development Award from the endMS Research and Training Network and the Multiple Sclerosis Society of Canada.
