Barrow-ASU Center for Preclinical Imaging
Focus and Mission
The mission of the Barrow-ASU Center for Preclinical is to provide state-of-the-art imaging technology and expertise for researchers in the Phoenix area. Our center provides a wide array of imaging modalities including MRI, bioluminescence and florescence, microPET, and microCT.
The Center is a joint effort between Barrow Neurological Institute and Arizona State University. Together, our goal is to provide essential core technologies to Valley researchers and, as a result, advance biosciences across the entire State of Arizona.
Over the past several decades, advances in imaging science have unlocked new discoveries in biology and medicine. Our facility makes this advanced technology available to researchers across Central Arizona. Using these resources, investigators can examine the in vivo anatomy and function of their preclinical models.
In addition to advanced technology, the Center for Preclinical Imaging also offers professional expertise to help researchers develop and implement their imaging protocols.
