BRAIN Initiative Grants to CMRR

posted on October 8, 2014

The Center for Magnetic Resonance Research has received two federal grants under the BRAIN Initiative. One of these projects is co-headed by MSI Principal Investigator Michael Garwood, a professor of radiology (Medical School) along with radiology professor Thomas Vaughn. The grant will help fund the development of a small, portable magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) device.

Articles about this award can be found in the University Brief and the Minneapolis Star-Tribune. Professor Garwood uses MSI resources to create accurate simulations of novel frequency swept pulse sequences for MRI.
