(NPIL) Neurosciences Preclinical Imaging Laboratory

 

 

Overview of Services

Our mission is to provide state-of-the-art preclinical Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) technology and expertise to the Stanford community to accelerate neuroscience-focused scientific discovery.

Services
1. Full Project Support: NPIL provides support for APLAC protocol approval, conducts the imaging study, provides standard animal handling for imaging (no surgical procedure or complex procedures beyond needed for MR imaging), data collection, and animal transfer (rats and mice only).
2. Full Scanning Support: Investigators are fully supported throughout the scanning procedure by NPIL staff.
3. Independent Operation: Investigators will be certified by the NPIL Director after completion of independent operator training by the NPIL-designated trainer, and may perform imaging study and animal handling independently.

Equipment and Technology
At the heart of our lab is our state-of-the-art Bruker 7T MRI system with 40-cm diameter bore — the first such system installed in the United States — which is capable of supporting a range of small to large-animal studies.
