This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

The UK's University of Nottingham has been awarded a £3m ($5m) grant by the Wellcome Foundation to develop and house what is being billed as Europe's most powerful magnetic resonance scanner. Scientists from the university's Magnetic Resonance Centre will be working with Philips on the design of the equipment, which will be used to "explore the boundaries of what is possible at ultra-high field," said Professor Peter Morris, leader of the project. "It will be used to study, for example, basic brain functions in real time," he added. The unit, funded through the government's Joint Infrastructure Fund, will be made available as a national ultra-high field facility for functional magnetic resonance.
