UVM's Core Research Facilities

UVM's shared facilities and resources provide researchers with the sophisticated equipment and methodologies that help expand their work.

MRI Center for Biomedical Imaging

The UVM MRI Center for Biomedical Imaging is a Core research facility that is supported by the College of Medicine and by grant funded research study fees. The MRI Center welcomes new research studies and will make every effort to accommodate the needs of your study; however, some studies will draw more significantly on the resources of the center and may require advanced preparation. 

We strongly encourage investigators to consult with a radiologist about reviewing the MRI scans for pathology. If you are planning to involve a radiologist in your study; especially for safety screening purposes, you should contact Dr. Joshua Nickerson in advance. Please do not wait until your study is ready to start up to do so. Radiologist safety reads are not automatically performed for research MRI’s. You will be required by the IRB and the Fletcher Allen compliance department to demonstrate that you have a billing plan in place prior to study approval. 

An MRI Center Proposal for Use form must be completed and approved well in advance of the study start date. Forms can be downloaded from the MRI Center for Biomedical Imaging website

Investigators who are planning to use the MRI Center as a resource for their study must be sure to contact one of the following people to ensure that your proposed MRI study can be accommodated:
