Life Science MRI

 

The Purdue Life Science MRI Facility is a Purdue Core facility supported by the College of Health and Human Sciences, housing a 3T Siemens MAGNETOM Prisma MRI scanner. The facility is dedicated to the advancement of basic and applied life science research on the Purdue campus with an emphasis in understanding human health and disease. Examples of current research topics include nutrition, environmental health, psychology, basic brain research, speech, language and auditory disorders, motor disorders, autism, cancer, and neurodegenerative disorders. The goal of the Purdue Life Science MRI Facility is to create a supportive environment promoting research on any and all life science-related topics.

 

Funding Opportunities

 

HHS MRI Pilot Grants 

The College of Health and Human Sciences (HHS) is happy to announce the call for applications for the 2021-2022 MRI Pilot Grants program. This program supports faculty research by providing up to $3000 in funding to cover the cost of scanning time (6 hours) at the Purdue Life Sciences MRI Facility. At least 5 hours of training and consultation with the MRI Facility staff is also included. Proposals must tie the pilot grant to an upcoming federal grant submission, which contains an MRI component that will be carried out at the Purdue Life Sciences MRI Facility. HHS expects to award 4-6 awards across the year. Funds will be available for one-year, after which they will be returned to the College. More details can be found in the link below!

If you already have a publication, where this was omitted, please sign in to NCBI, go to Manage My Bibliography and click “Add Award” (or click on the number of awards already associated with the publication). There you can search for other awards than your own, and by typing in the info on the grant above, you will be able to link this grant to your publication.
 
This linking of the publication to the grant is extremely important for our annual reports back to NIH about the instrumentation grant!
Thank you,
The Life Science MRI Facility
