Small animal MRI core facility


Scientific manager: Alexandra PETIET (Engineer)

Operational manager: Mathieu SANTIN (PhD)


The SA MRI core facility is part of the Center for Neuroimaging Research (CENIR). This platform is dedicated to imaging experimental models of diseases (mainly rodents and potentially any species small enough to fit inside the magnet). A very high magnetic field (11,7 T), associated with high quality probes (Cryoprobe™ for mice), a wide range of imaging protocols and support to data analysis, bring the quality needed for a small animal MRI core facility. CENIR-SA MRI is part of the Institut du Cerveau – ICM core facility network (PHENO-Institut du Cerveau – ICMice, PHENO-PRIMR…) which facilitates translational research projects.
