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.
