The Small Animal MRI Core Facility is funded and operated under the Biomedical Research Imaging Center (BRIC). Our facility provides a wide variety of small animal MRI services to investigators within or outside UNC.
The Bruker 9.4T horizontal bore scanner is one of the MRI systems within UNC BRIC service cores dedicated for small animal studies. The higher sensitivity produces greater spatial and/or temporal resolution from the 9.4T magnet, and is critical for in vivo animal imaging. The Bruker Biospec 9.4T/30-cm horizontal bore animal MRI system is a shared instrumentation originally funded to UNC BRIC by NIH S10 RR019924.
Researchers led by Zibo Li, PhD, said their findings could make it possible to attach radioactive tags to compounds that previously have been difficult or even impossible to label.
The 2019 Triangle Imaging Symposium at UNC BRIC, will feature lectures by speakers from Johns Hopkins, UNC, Duke, NCSU and Wake Forest University and is open to the entire scientific community. The Symposium also includes a Poster Session with presentations given by students, trainees, residents, and faculty to highlight imaging research projects within and outside UNC. The symposium will take place on Wednesday, April 24th, 2019 beginning at 8:30 am in the Bioinformatics building, room 1131. Breakfast and lunch will be served for those who register in advance!
