As one of two physicists within BIOTIC, Dr. Bowen provides daily guidance in MRI and PET training for two technicians within the centre. He also directs scientific activities in the preclinical imaging facility.

BIOTIC is specifically mandated to provide commercial research opportunities, and Dr. Bowen has trained multiple co-op students working on commercial contracts. He has supervised commercially focused MITACS students (PhD and post-doc level), showing evidence of exposure of HQP to commercially directed research. He also teaches an MRI physics half course within the Dalhousie physics program, supporting graduate training.
