In 2007, the University of Georgia launched the Bio-Imaging Research Center (BIRC), a multi-imaging research suite designed to provide a full range of biological tissue imaging technologies for use by biomedical investigators across campus.

Directed by Brett Clementz, Distinguished Research Professor of psychology and neuroscience, the facility houses a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) machine, electroencephalography (EEG), magnetoencephalography (MEG) and other technologies to serve researchers in neuroscience, physiology, social behavior, psychology and more.

The state-of-the-art facility fosters collaborative research—like these projects in a recent Office of Research feature—among human, animal and cellular scientists at UGA and scientists in other federal, state and private agencies or businesses.
