Kamil Ugurbil stands in front of the world's largest whole body imaging magnet Monday, Dec. 9, 2013. The 10.5 Tesla magnet was delivered to the University of Minnesota last Friday following a month-long boat journey from England, where it was manufactured, to Duluth. Ugurbil, director of the U of M's Center for Magnetic Resonance Research, says the new device will be used to aid in brain research and human body imaging.
