It is with much sadness that the department announces the passing of Dr. R. Mark Henkelman, MBP Professor Emeritus on June 28, 2024.

Dr. Henkelman was a brilliant imaging scientist who had formative influence on the science of Magnetic Resonance Imaging. His roles as a scientist and leader at Princess Margaret Hospital, Sunnybrook Hospital, the Hospital for Sick Children and the Department of Medical Biophysics have had a remarkably large influence on the landscape of research in Toronto. He has had a personal and lasting influence on all of us.

Our deepest condolences go out to Mark’s family, friends and colleagues. He will be deeply missed by the Medical Biophysics community. 

Details regarding memorial services will be shared with the department once made available.
