Martinos Center for Biomedical Imaging Core Facility (MGH)

Director: Rosen, Bruce R., Ph.D., M.D.

Location: Athinoula A. Martinos Center for Biomedical Imaging, 149 Thirteenth Street, Suite 2301 Charlestown Navy Yard, Charlestown, MA 02129

Core Summary:

The Martinos Center's dual mission includes translational research and technology development. The core technologies being developed and used at the center are magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and spectroscopy (MRS), magnetoencephalography (MEG) and electroencephalograpy (EEG), near infra-red spectroscopy (NIRS) and diffuse optical tomography (DOT), Positron Emission Tomography (PET), electrophysiology, molecular imaging, and computational image analysis. A particular area of innovation at the Center is Multimodal Functional Neuroimaging which involves the integration of imaging technologies. We are also world leaders in the development of primate neuroimaging techniques. Major areas of research at the center include, psychiatric, neurologic and neurovascular disorders, basic and cognitive neuroscience, cardiovascular disease, cancer and more. With an extensive and expanding inventory of state-of-the-art imaging facilities, a world class team of investigators and collaborators, and important government, industry and private supporters, the Martinos Center is leading the way to new advances and applications in biomedical imaging.
