A European Centre of Excellence in Ultra-High-Field MRI has been established on the Maastricht Health Campus – pooling the expertise of an international group of technological, clinical and academic organizations.

Under the umbrella of Brains Unlimited, it provides a unique, integrated platform that combines state-of-the art technology with know-how (and access to patients) and internationally renowned expertise in post-acquisition processing of data in relation to Ultra-High-Field human MRI. A newly constructed facility houses three Ultra-High-Field MRI scanners of 9.4, 7, and 3 Tesla.

Scannexus is the commercial vehicle for the management of this facility, as well as providing a single transactional entity for the development and delivery of projects utilising the scanner facility and elements carried out within our clinical and academic partners. This facility and delivery network will provide a range of services to pharma and biotech partners with an interest in understanding disease, measuring response to treatment and visualising therapeutic impact.

In addition, Scannexus provides the professional interface for the Executive education programme in the principles and applications of MRI.

The location will also house spin-off companies in a new, dedicated incubator building operated by BioPartner Centre Maastricht and new accommodation for the staff of the Faculty of Psychology and Neuroscience, Maastricht University.
