FSU TO DEBUT FLORIDA’S MOST ADVANCED MRI MACHINE

Florida State University will hold an opening ceremony for its new functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) facility, featuring the most advanced MRI machine available in Florida.

The new fMRI machine will help FSU researchers from across the university unravel the mysteries of the brain and prevent the disorders that can impede its most basic functions.

The event will feature remarks by FSU President John Thrasher, Provost Sally McRorie, Vice President for Research Gary K. Ostrander and College of Medicine Dean John P. Fogarty.

The event will take place:

MONDAY, OCT. 24

3 - 5 P.M.

FSU COLLEGE OF MEDICINE

1115 W. CALL ST.

TALLAHASSEE, FLA.

Media interested in a brief tour of the facility should arrive at the event at 2:30 p.m. for a media-only tour. Please note that due to the magnetic properties of MRI scanners, people and camera equipment will need to maintain a safe distance from the machine while in the facility.

Directions to the FSU College of Medicine: From downtown, travel west on Tennessee Street and turn left on Stadium Drive. Parking is available in the parking garage at Stadium Drive and Spirit Way.
