Text description provided by the architects. The Centre for Advanced Imaging (CAI) captures highly experimental molecular imaging technology and the necessary support resources within a single facility.

The project aligns research, industry and education, and creates a new identity for the CAI. To realise the full potential of imaging as a research tool, the CAI provides a rich collaborative environment for researchers in disciplines ranging from engineering, synthetic and radiochemistry, physics and computer science to biology, medicine and psychology.

This mix of researchers works on innovations in imaging technology, imaging biomarker development and in biomedical research disciplines. The facility accommodates the complimentary use of MRI and PET imaging technologies in association with a Cyclotron, and supporting radio chemistry laboratories for research and commercial partnering.
