The Magnetic Resonance Technology and Use Design Laboratory of James G. Pipe, Ph.D., at Mayo Clinic provides educational opportunities for undergraduates, graduate students and postdoctoral fellows.

Dr. Pipe welcomes inquiries from graduate students interested in pursuing their Ph.D. dissertations with his research team. He also welcomes both in-depth and abbreviated projects with magnetic resonance technologists, medical students, residents and fellows.

The Magnetic Resonance Technology and Use Design Laboratory's resources include whole-body 1.5 T and 3 T MRI scanners, a Skope field camera, and office and meeting room spaces. It is housed in Discovery Square, which allows immediate interaction with the many groups located there, including Philips Healthcare, a close industry partner, which has space immediately adjacent.

Given the size and recognized excellence of Mayo Clinic's clinical practice and Department of Radiology — with more than 40 magnetic resonance scanners and five dedicated research magnetic resonance scanners, more than 100 full-time employees dedicated to imaging research, and close industry relationships — this is a unique environment in which to gain a broad perspective and solid training in the design, development and use of MRI in clinical practice.
