Focus and Mission

The mission of the BNI-ASU Center for Preclinical Imaging is to provide state-of-the-art imaging technology and expertise to researchers in and around Phoenix, Arizona. Key to that goal is our 7 Tesla (7T) Bruker BioSpec® preclinical magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) machine.

The Center is a joint effort between Barrow Neurological Institute and Arizona State University with the goals of providing a key piece of core technology to area researchers to advance biosciences across Arizona.

Over the past decade, high-field MRI systems have unlocked new discoveries in biology and medicine. Our facility makes this state-of-the-art technology available to researchers across central Arizona. Using this resource, investigators can examine the in vivo anatomy and function of their preclinical models.

In addition to advanced technology, the Center for Preclinical Imaging also offers professional expertise to help researchers develop and implement their imaging protocols.
