About Us

The new Gateway MRI Center for Functional and Molecular Imaging at Gateway University Research Park in Greensboro, North Carolina consists of interdisciplinary scientists with expertise in structural and functional imaging.

Housed in a state-of-the-art building at the Joint School for Nanoscience and Nanoengineering (JSNN), our imaging scientists collaborate across disciplinary fields to exploit emerging frontiers in neural engineering and develop new approaches for determining anatomical and functional connectivity in neural circuits. These frontiers include analyses, recording, imaging and manipulating activity in networks and defined ensembles of neurons.

Our Gateway MRI Center experimental work is tightly coupled with the theoretical and computational efforts carried out by scientists within JSNN and the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, along with regional, national, and global partners.

Fostering vibrant investigations and research efforts across disciplinary boundaries, the Gateway MRI Center ultimately will comprise interdisciplinary research groups that combine state-of-the art imaging with emerging analytics to explore the bio-inspired mechanisms of thought, feeling, movement and perception.
