NeuroSpin is a research center built to develop and validate neuroimaging using ultra-high Magnetic Field headed by Dr. Denis Le Bihan, a Member of the French Academy of Sciences. It was opened on January 1st 2007. The center is recognized as a large infrastructure, for biomedical imaging, such as the CERN in Genève. It is a shared imaging facility with unique imaging devices,. An 11.7T MRI scanner for human will be installed in 2016, one of the first in the world.
The Institute of Biomedicale Imaging take part in three projects: CATI, INUMAC project and Human Brain Project.

Molecular Imaging Research Center
MIRCen -Molecular Imaging Research Center- is a preclinical research installation created by the CEA and INSERM.
This installation, based at the CEA center in Fontenay-aux-Roses, consists of a group of platforms dedicated to the development of animal models pertinent to human diseases. These animal models are used in the evaluation of innovative treatments, principally in the domain of neurodegenerative diseases, but also in the fields of infectious and cardiac diseases.
These platforms occupy 8500 m² and provide access to complementary expertise and methodologies for both academic and industrial research teams at the national and international levels (see "Service request").
About a hundred researchers, research officers, technicians, clinicians and students from the CEA, INSERM and CNRS, and from Henri Mondor Hospital, work at this center, on their own research programs (see the "Neurodegenerative Diseases Laboratory”) or lend their focused expertise in neurosciences to the running of the platforms (see “MIRCen plateforms”).
MIRCen has GIS IBISA (Infrastructures in Biology, Health and Agronomy) accreditation.
