In 2014, the CMRR became the first U.S. facility to install the MAGNETOM Prisma, a 3 Tesla MR scanner from Siemens.

"The Center for Magnetic Resonance Research is excited to add the MAGNETOM Prisma 3T scanner to support our research efforts to obtain better information about anatomical connections within the brain." said Ugurbil at that time.

In 2017, The Weizmann Institute of Science in Israel announced that it had installed Bruker’s Biospec 15.2T USR preclinical ultrahigh-field MR system.

"[This] instrument will enable new forms of multiplexed imaging not previously available to the institute, with the aim to develop, optimize and implement genetically engineered reporter systems for MR with artificial 'multicolor' characteristics," Dr. Amnon Bar-Shir of the department of organic chemistry at the institute, told HCB News at the time.

"The instrument will also deliver superior spectral resolution for functional brain studies, the capability of studying low-gamma-insensitive nuclei, and serve as imaging platform for an accompanying dissolution DNP hyperpolarizer," said Bar-Shir.
