Board of Regents Approves CMRR Renovation Expansion Plan

The University of Minnesota Board of Regents has approved the Center for Magnetic Resonance Research (CMRR)/Medical Discovery Team (MDT) in Optical Imaging and Brain Science Renovation Expansion Plan. This project will renovate and add interdisciplinary and collaborative laboratory, office and conference room space at the CMRR Building. 

New spaces will support the MDT in Optical Imaging and Brain Science program as well as support the original mission of CMRR to provide magnetic resonance research across the University community. Collectively, the approaches and instrumentation developed in CMRR constitute some of the most important tools used today. This expansion will transcend the CMRR’s ability to conduct cutting-edge translational bench and clinical research.

This exciting project will commence in 2019 and will be conducted in phases to remove the large bore 9.4T MRI scanner, add the new 7T Terra MRI Scanner and install new lab and office space for both CMRR and MDT in Optical Imaging and Brain Science.
