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 at a national and international level. 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.

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.

The Centre actively engages with business, industry, professional bodies and the wider community with the aim of sharing knowledge and expertise and developing mutually beneficial partnerships.
