In Vivo Multifunctional Magnetic Resonance Center


The In vivo Multifunctional Magnetic Resonance (IMMR) center was founded in 2016 to strengthen the recognition and use of functional magnetic resonance imaging in research and build collaborative efforts with the ultimate goal to help patients. Resources in the center include accumulated expertise of the members, state-of-the art EPR/NMR spectroscopic and imaging instruments, including commercially available and newly-designed, custom-made advanced instrumentation, a set of unique paramagnetic probes developed by the chemists within the IMMR center, and several mouse models of cancers available for in vivo multifunctional imaging of tumor microenvironment.
