The facility at COBRE will complement the neuroimaging facilities at the UNM Clinical Magnetic Resonance Research Center (CMRRC) and the Veteran's Administration Medical Center, making Albuquerque one of the premier sites for neuroimaging research in the country. Early phases of construction will start late this summer.
"The combined facility will help promising junior faculty members develop into NIH-funded neuroscientists," said Okada. "The grant provides funds for the young scientists to carry out research in diseases of the brain such as epilepsy, stroke and traumatic brain injury."
