|Content Description||Papers relating to the setting up of the Magnetic Resonance Centre at the University of Nottingham. [Further papers relating to the Magnetic Resonance Centre can also be found in some of the correspondence files in PPM/11/1.]|
The Magnetic Resonance Centre was established in 1991. Initial work focused on dynamic imaging using echo-planar imaging (EPI), NMR microscopy and neurospectroscopy. Peter Mansfield was the first Director of the Centre. When he retired in 1994, Professor Peter Morris took over as Director. In 2002 a donation from Sir Peter enabled the Centre to be expanded, and it was renamed the Sir Peter Mansfield MR Centre (SPMMRC) in his honour. In 2015, the imaging activities at the Queen's Medical Centre (QMC) were brought together with those of SPMMRC and the combined multidisciplinary facility was renamed the Sir Peter Mansfield Imaging Centre (SPMIC). In 2016 Professor Peter Morris retired as Director and was succeeded by Professor Richard Bowtell.
