Mission: The Center for Imaging Research unites basic and clinical scientists of various disciplines to further the development and application of functional imaging in health and disease.
The Medical College of Wisconsin (MCW) pioneered functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) in the early 1990s, along with Massachusetts General Hospital/Harvard University and the University of Minnesota.
During the last decade, the college has continued to focus its efforts on the technological advancement of this modality.
The Center for Imaging Research (CIR), founded in 2002, was the natural result of several MCW departments working with this expertise.

This year, the Center for Imaging Research is sponsoring weekly lunch-and-learn sessions noon to 1 pm most Wednesdays. Presenters are reviewing manuscripts in NeuroImage Volume 80, Mapping the Connectome.
Topics include history and anatomy, microscopic-level connectomics, and general connectomic history. Articles cover other major ongoing connectome-related projects and a wide range of methodology reviews.

Center for Imaging Research seeks grant applications
The Center for Imaging Research (CIR) seeks grant applications to provide vital funding for innovative imaging-based research projects at the 3T and 7T scanners. The Center will issue five $5,000 and five $15,000 awards to be used for MRI scanner fees and applicable subject stipends and transportation costs.
The grant was established with the generous support of the Daniel M. Soref Foundation.
“This funding allows us to support and encourage Midwest imaging investigators so that they can gather data to publish new results and obtain federal funding,” said Shi-Jiang Li, PhD, Director of the Center for Imaging Research. “In addition, this will stimulate new collaborative studies between departments and institutions.”
Investigators interested in this grant opportunity may obtain more information and link to the grant application on the Center for Imaging Research website. You may also contact Carrie O’Connor, firstname.lastname@example.org or 414-955-4956. Applications must be submitted through eBridge by 5 p.m. on Oct. 31.
The Center for Imaging Research (CIR) focuses on the intersection of basic, clinical and translational research. The Center welcomes interdisciplinary physicians, scientists and faculty physicists to this collaborative initiative.
