National Imaging Facility

The Australian National Imaging Facility (NIF) is a $130 million project that provides state-of-the-art imaging capability of animals, plants, and materials for the Australian research community. NIF’s grid of imaging facilities spreads across Australia, aiming to provide a range of leading-edge imaging instrumentation and expertise in the optimal use of imaging technology to the Australian research community.

Established in 2007, NIF is one of the four initiative projects implemented by the Australian Government, under the National Collaborative Research Infrastructure Strategy (NCRIS) Characterisation capabilities. Recently, NIF has further expanded by the Education Investment Fund (EIF), which supports world-leading, strategically-focused infrastructure investments that will transform Australian tertiary research and education.

 

 

 

Featured Researcher

Dr Kirk Feindel

Dr Feindel is overseeing the operation and development of research projects on the Bruker 9.4 T BioSpec at the Centre for Microscopy, Characterisation and Analysis (CMCA).  He has a diverse MR background with experience in preclinical, human and materials imaging, rheo-NMR, and solid-state NMR spectroscopy.  At CMCA the BioSpec is used by a plethora of researchers with applications including marine science, engineering, and biomedical research.  Dr Feindel's research interests focus on the identification and understanding of pathology-specific MR contrasts for...

Novel Tractography to Detect Mild Traumatic Brain Injury

A mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI), often referred to as a concussion, rarely has lasting effects and is often presumed to cause only transient disturbances to brain function. However, repeated mTBIs, particularly those occurring in the sports and military settings, have been associated with cumulative and chronic neurological impairments, and the development of neurodegenerative diseases...
