The Pittsburgh NMR Center for Biomedical Research
The Pittsburgh NMR Center is funded by a grant from the National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering (NIBIB) as a Biomedical Technology Research Center (P41 EB001977). Our mission is to advance state-of-the-art in vivo magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and spectroscopy (MRS) techniques to better understand tissue and organ function and to make these tools available to the greater biomedical research community.
