UF McKnight Brain Institute – New MRI and Renovated Research Space

  • Project Owner: University of Florida
  • Location: Gainesville FL
  • Partners: Ponikvar & Associates and Moses & Associates Engineering

Scorpio installed a Siemens 3T MRI/S state-of-the-art scanner and renovated space at Evelyn F. and William L. McKnight Brain Institute that will significantly enhance human subject research capability across the UF campus.

UF’s Center for Cognitive Aging and Memory Clinical Translational Research (CAM Center) and the Advanced Magnetic Resonance Imaging and Spectroscopy Facility (AMRIS) now have new expanded spaces in the MBI that will support a wide array of ongoing and new studies.

Formerly configured as conference rooms LG-110A and B, the ground-floor spaces have been turned into testing rooms for clinical and cognitive assessments, an electrophysiology suite, a transcranial magnetic stimulation lab and new waiting areas for study participants right next door to the new Siemens 3T MRI/S state-of-the-art scanner.  

A new Siemens 3T MRI/S scanner is part of extensive renovations at the McKnight Brain Institute. The state-of-the-art $3 million scanner has the strongest gradients available for human imaging, advanced motion correction capabilities and increased scanning flexibility.

The new Cognitive Aging and Memory space will serve investigators conducting human clinical trials as well as basic research studies. The mission of the Center is to support scientific research aimed at understanding and alleviating age-related memory loss.

“This new space will allow researchers more space and flexibility to screen and test their research participants before or after using the MRI scanners." Joanna Long, Ph.D., AMRIS Director , University of Florida McKnight Brain Institute
