Advancing Imaging

We conduct leading magnetic resonance research and clinical research at the Center for Magnetic Resonance Research, Center for Clinical Imaging Research and University of Minnesota Health and affiliate hospitals.

Center for Magnetic Resonance Research

CMRR Building

CMRR is home to some of the most advanced MR instrumentation in the world, including the world’s first 10.5T clinical imaging magnet, complemented by human resources that provide unique expertise in imaging physics, engineering and signal processing.

Center for Clinical Imaging Research

Dr. Cayci at CCIR

CCIR, a National Cancer Institute Center of Quantitative Imaging Excellence (CQIE), provides advanced imaging for specialized clinical and clinical research protocols. Specialized reproducible imaging protocols are implemented with consistent quality via a research-compliant team approach.

Research Opportunities for Trainees

Residents, fellows medical students and graduate students are highly encouraged to participate in research activities. Several faculty members are ready and willing to work with trainees at most stages of education.

If you are interested in getting involved with research happening in the department, please contact Jill Novitzke, RN, BSN, MPA at
