Imaging center opens for multidisciplinary research scanning

Penn State's Chandlee Laboratory, recently renovated at University Park for a new life as home to the Social, Life and Engineering Sciences Imaging Center, or SLEIC, held an open house Monday afternoon (April 13) to celebrate its new multidisciplinary research scanning facility. Penn State College of Medicine now has a twin of the MRI machine in Hershey, which will allow University Park researchers and their colleagues at Penn State Hershey's Center for NMR Research to collaborate more effectively to unlock secrets of the brain.
