The University awarded a contract for upgrade to MRI scanner platform.
This emergency/quick purchase was required due to a situation in which immediate action was warranted to avoid the lapse or loss of federal or donated funds.
UIC purchased a 3T MRI scanner from General Electric (GE) Healthcare in 2011. Thus, upgrade on this scanner can ONLY be provided by GE Healthcare. The Center for MR Research, College of Medicine of UIC, supports ~20 funded research investigators. Six of federally-funded projects are presently put on hold waiting for this upgrade. An immediate deadline is June 30, 2018 to demonstrate the research feasibility that can only be performed with this upgrade. This means that the installation of the upgrade has to be completed immediately to allow the researchers to conduct the studies and demonstrate the feasibilities by June 30, 2018. If this upgrade were not done in time, we run the risk of losing $2.5mm in federal funds .
