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.

The â€śClinical investigationâ€ť group consists of researchers, MDs, Pharmacists, highly involved in clinical research. Their goal is to design and test new imaging concepts for a better characterization of disease and for an enhanced understanding of the onset of disease, drug response and disease evolution over time, towards precision medicice. Their two main research areas are neurological diseases and cancer.
