The Centre for Advanced Imaging (CAI)

The Centre for Advanced Imaging (CAI) is a strategic initiative of The University of Queensland, reflecting the growth in biotechnology, biomedical and materials research requiring advanced imaging capabilities. As a leading imaging research facility in Australia, and one of a handful in the world, CAI brings together the skills of a critical mass of researchers and ‘state-of-the-art’, world- or Australian-first research imaging instruments. NMR, EPR, MRI, PET, CT and optical imaging are now key platform research technologies for studying the structure and function of biomolecules and living organisms, from proteins to the human. The Centre for Advanced Imaging (CAI) at the University of Queensland hosts the largest Node of the National Imaging Facility (http://anif.org.au/ ).

CAI conducts research across the spectrum from development of new imaging technologies, analysis of molecular structure, synthesis of MRI and PET biomarkers targeting fundamental biological processes to studies of major diseases, such as neurodegenerative disorders, cancer and cardiovascular disease affecting a range of organ systems, through to imaging economically significant agricultural animals and plant material, minerals and construction materials.

Further details on the Centre for Advanced imaging and the research interests of its staff can be found on CAI’s website http://www.cai.uq.edu.au/

CAI is committed to supporting the career growth of female researchers and have a number of initiatives to support women in developing and achieving a fulfilling research career at the Centre.
