At the heart of our lab is our state-of-the-art Bruker 7T MRI system with 40-cm diameter bore — the first such system installed in the United States — which is capable of supporting a range of small to large-animal studies.
Bringing this technology to the Stanford neuroscience community was made possible by funding from the National Institutes of Health (grant S10OD025176 to Jin Hyung Lee, PhD), and the Wu Tsai Neurosciences Institute. We would also like to acknowledge the long-time support of the Stanford departments of Neurology, Neurosurgery, Psychiatry and Radiology and Stanford BioX, which was critical in making our new facility a reality.
