LARIF is the large animal models of human disease development facility located in Adelaide. A fully serviced operating theatre complex complete with a 1.5T Siemens Sonata MRI is available exclusively for researchers using large animals (sheep and pigs). The surgical suites and supporting services is linked to a large animal holding facility. This facility will have provision for experimental rooms, tissue collection facility plus a cold room, deep litter sheep pens, pig pens to hold 20-30 pigs individually, and rooms to hold sheep in expandable metabolism crates. The facility will also have a workshop for physicists to design and create new RF coils to optimise MR images for example. The facility is planned to be operational by September 2008, and it will initially house the 1.5T MRI as well as a DEXA scanner, Image Intensifier equipment, and telemetric physiological monitoring equipment for large and small animals.
