Happy 25th birthday to the Sir Peter Mansfield Resonance Centre!

The Sir Peter Mansfield Magnetic Resonance Centre, named after the Nobel-winning University of Nottingham scientist who developed magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), celebrates the 25th anniversary of its establishment today. Together with the School of Medicine’s Medical Imaging Unit, the Centre from the School of Physics and Astronomy, now forms part of the new Sir Peter Mansfield Imaging Centre. This brings together scientists and clinicians to develop new medical imaging techniques to improve patient care. An investment of £7.7m from the Medical Research Council and £1.67m from the University of Nottingham for the Sir Peter Mansfield Imaging Centre has secured Nottingham’s position in the vanguard of MRI research internationally.
