September 27, 2022 – Just one breezy day before the UF campus closed for Hurricane Ian, riggers unloaded a tractor trailer filled with large, heavy crates containing the components for our new 7T MRI system. We are still renovating the building space that will become home to this new system, but we hope to have it ready for users by the start of 2023.

A consensus protocol for functional connectivity analysis: Dr. Marcelo Febo and AMRIS staff collaborated with a consortium of facilities to develop best practices for collecting high quality preclinical fMRI data. The lead author, Dr. Joanes Grandjean, is an Assistant Professor at the Donders Institute which is part of Radboud University in the Netherlands. He is the primary driver of these international standardization efforts for fMRI in rodents. These protocols are available on our 11 T system and will be available on our 7 T system in the coming weeks.
