Research and Technology Development

The Martinos Center's dual mission includes translational research and technology development. The core technologies being developed and used at the Center are magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and spectroscopy (MRS), magnetoencephalography (MEG) and electroencephalograpy (EEG), diffuse optical imaging (DOI), positron emission tomography (PET), molecular imaging and transcranial magnetic stimulation. A particular area of innovation at the Center is Multimodal Functional Neuroimaging, which involves the integration of imaging technologies. Major areas of research at the Center include: psychiatric, neurologic and neurovascular disorders; basic and cognitive neuroscience; cardiovascular disease; cancer; and more. With an extensive and expanding inventory of state-of-the-art imaging facilities, a world-class team of investigators and collaborators, and important government, industry and private supporters, the Martinos Center is leading the way to new advances and applications in biomedical imaging.
