Dr. Liu is the Small Animal MRI Core Director. Dr. Liu is an Associate Professor at the Department of Radiology at UNMC. Dr. Liu has a broad background in biomedical imaging with an expertise in MRI. His research focuses on the development of imaging and image analysis methods to study human diseases modeled using small animals and non-human primates. He will be providing the oversight over the 7T MRI instrument including the staff operating it as well as train new users and advise on experimental design.

Small animal MRI core facility has two 7 Tesla Bruker MRI systems providing imaging based small animal research. We provide consultations to investigators on experimental planning and protocol design, and assistance in data analysis and interpretation. Advanced MRI techniques include diffusion tensor imaging, chemical exchangesaturation transfer, dynamic contrast enhancement imaging, perfusion MRI and more.
