HPD has been awarded a $300,000 grant by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and National Cancer Institute (NCI) for the development of Ultra-low Field MRI (ULF-MRI) technology. Under this Small Business Innovative Research grant, HPD will work with physicists at the University of California, Berkeley and at NIST Boulder to refine and further develop ULF-MRI technology for detection of prostate and breast cancers. This technology could greatly enhance the ability for early diagnosis and treatment of these diseases. HPD will apply its expertise in the area of low-temperature instrumentation to this effort.
