    A little more hope for spinal cord research in U.S.

    Thanks EAK,

    Tracking the progress of disease is critical in the assessment, diagnosis and treatment of neurologically degenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s, as well as traumatic brain and spinal cord injuries and stroke. A grant to buy a state-of-the-art MRI and spectroscopy system will provide scientists an opportunity to advance basic biomedical discoveries aimed at improving human health.

    The $1.3 million high-resolution, 7.0 Tesla magnetic imaging system will allow two- and three-dimensional image reconstruction. With a resolution below 100 micrometers, the system allows researchers to see tissues or structures smaller than the width of a human hair.
