RutgersNSFRutgers University awarded NSF MRI Grant to build Neuroimaging Center


Rutgers University has just won an NSF Major Research Instrumentation Award to Trio 3T MRI scannercreate a research-dedicated Neuroimaging center lead by Stephen J. Hanson with Bart Krekelberg and Mauricio Delgado. The $1.8M$ award will be used to acquire a Siemens TRIO 3T MRI scanner for a Brain Imaging Center that will be called RUBIC (Rutgers Brain Imaging Center). The center will support diverse research in cognitive, perceptual and social neuroscience from all Rutgers campuses and included core researchers from both Newark and New Brunswick. The neuroimaging research envisioned embraces both basic and applied studies.

 

Paula Tallal and other TDLC's PIs at Rutgers participated in this grant. This new facility should enable many opportunities where TDLC and RUBIC could collaborate across common learning and neuroscience themes.
