University of Iowa officials are seeking approval from the state Board of Regents to purchase a new $7 million magnetic resonance imaging scanner.

According to the regents' agenda released Thursday, the scanner will enhance several of the UI's clusters, including aging, obesity, and genetics, and will be located in the new Pappajohn Biomedical Discovery Building, which is under construction.

The scanner will be integrated into the Iowa Institute for Biomedical Imaging, the UI's Clinical and Translation Science Award, and the National Cancer Institute funded cancer center, according to the request.
