The Neuroscience Research Institute has entered into research agreements with numerous institutes worldwide, thus becoming a global leader in Neuroscience and Neuroimaging

The NRI of Gachon University of Medicine and Science has entered into agreements with several institutes worldwide for cooperative research and development of the 7.0T MRI, one of the few being Siemens, a global leader in the field.


Joint Research in Collaboration with Harvard Medical School, Mayo Clinic and University of Melbourne

Since 2005, NRI has entered into a number of agreements with research institutes such as Harvard Medical School, Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Mayo Clinic and the University of Melbourne. These agreements have secured mutual cooperation in the research and development of the hybrid PET-MRI system. The Harvard group has a keen interest in our UHF MRI technology as well as the progress of our high resolution research tomography (HRRT) research, and on the other hand, their experiences and results with 1.5T as well as whole body PET will aid the development of our high-field PET-MRI fusion system.
