The Imaging Centre of Excellence will be based at the new South Glasgow University and has been supported by £16m of UK Government funding through the Medical Research Council as part of the Glasgow and Clyde Valley city deal.
The new five-storey ICE building will house the UK’s first 7 Tesla MRI scanner, allowing scientists to carry out new clinical research.
Anna Dominiczak, vice principal and head of the University of Glasgow’s College of Medical, Veterinary and Life Sciences, said: “The creation of an internationally competitive centre located within a university hospital campus, and incorporating NHS, academic and industry partners, will allow Glasgow to support a much greater volume and variety of clinical trials.”
