Centre of Advanced Imaging
University of Queensland
The Centre for Advanced Imaging (CAI) captures highly experimental molecular imaging technology and the necessary support resources within a single facility. The CAI is appropriately sited within the research precinct on the University of Queensland St Lucia Campus adjacent the Gehrmann and Ritchie Buildings and with nearby access to the adjacent Queensland Brain Institute (QBI) Building and the Australian Institute for Bioengineering and Nanotechnology (AIBN).
To realise the full potential of imaging as a research tool, the CAI provides a rich collaborative environment for researchers in disciplines ranging from engineering, synthetic and radiochemistry, physics and computer science to biology, medicine and psychology. This potent mix of researchers works on innovations in imaging technology, imaging biomarker development and in biomedical research disciplines.
The new CAI facility accommodates NMR (Nuclear magnetic resonance) and EPR (Electron paramagnetic resonance) alongside the complimentary use of MRI (Magnetic resonance imaging) and PET (Positron emission tomography) imaging technologies in association with a Cyclotron and supporting radiochemistry laboratories for research and commercial partnering.
