Vania Goncalves 19 May 2016 EUROPE BUILDINGS

The £44M Cardiff University Brain Research Imaging Centre (CUBRIC) will be opened on June 7 by Her Majesty the Queen.

The centre, built by construction company BAM, will be home to a combination of neuroimaging equipment unique in Europe, including Europe’s most powerful brain scanner, the Siemens 3 Tesla Connectom MRI System, and a specially adapted MRI scanner of which there is only one other in the world, at Harvard University.

Professor Derek Jones, director of CUBRIC, said: “This is the culmination of a huge amount of hard work by many people over several years and I would like to thank everyone who played their part in creating this remarkable facility.

“The combination of the very best staff in their field and some of the most powerful scanners in the world has the potential for breakthroughs that could make a real difference to people’s lives around the world.

“It will be a very special day for us all and a real honour to share it with Her Majesty The Queen and His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh.”

CUBRIC, set to support innovation in world-class brain imaging research, will be four times larger than the University’s existing brain research facility.
