About the project
• The Centre for Advanced Imaging (CAI) captures highly experimental molecular imaging technology and the necessary support resources within a single facility.
• The project aligns research, industry and education, and creates a new identity for the CAI.
• To realise the full potential of imaging as a research tool, the CAI provides a rich collaborative environment for researchers in disciplines ranging from engineering, synthetic and radiochemistry, physics and computer science to biology, medicine and psychology.
• This mix of researchers works on innovations in imaging technology, imaging biomarker development and in biomedical research disciplines.
• The facility accommodates the complimentary use of MRI and PET imaging technologies in association with a Cyclotron, and supporting radio chemistry laboratories for research and commercial partnering.
• The five-storey building houses three floors of laboratories with write up areas, as well as offices and meeting spaces, seminar and training facilities. There is also a communal roof terrace for staff with views across the campus, an outdoor amphitheatre, and a gallery space.
• Lab Types - Cyclotron and radiochemistry hot cell labs, 7T whole body MRI Scanner, Electron Paramagnet Resonance Lab 700 NMR scanner, 9.4T Animal MRI, 16.4T scanner, Animal PET / CT Scanner, Animal PET/ MRI Scanner, Tissue Handling Laboratory (PC2)
• Technology – The building houses an Electron Paramagnet Resonance (EPR) laboratory, a Cyclotron and target hot cell and radiochemistry laboratories, a 7T Whole Body MRI, 700 NMR and 16.4T magnets, Animal PET / CT /MRI equipment and MR-PET scanner - PC2 Tissue Handling Laboratories
